Courier Corporation, 2002 M01 1 - 692 páginas
Few scholarly works possess the vast attraction and continuing fascination of this nearly century-old classic of sociology. Bringing to his writing the same force, power, and vitality that made his classes at Yale the focal point of the most vigorous intellectual activity, the author provides one of the most searching and incisive examinations of usages, manners, customs, mores, and morals ever written. He offers thousands of illustrations of the social, sexual, and religious customs of ancient Greece, Rome, medieval Christianity, Judaism, Africa, Islam, Australia, Melanesia, Japan, China, India, and modern Western civilization in Europe and America. The subjects of this famous and influential work include labor, wealth, slavery, cannibalism, marriage, drama, education, history, and many other absorbing topics. Unabridged republication of the 1906 edition. Prefatory note by A. G. Keller. Bibliography. Index.
