Details

The American scholar William Graham Sumner (1840-1910) was among the first to adopt the descriptive concept of sociology, and he undertook a search of ancient and modern customs around the world in order to understand the ways in which mores are formed, how they grow or decay and how they endure. Among the many topics he discusses are labour and wealth, slavery, abortion and infanticide, cannibalism, marriage, sports and asceticism. Reprint of the original edition, 1907.
