The following computer-generated description may contain errors and does not represent the quality of the book.
The reader who has no previous acquaintance with the literature of sociology will probably be considerably surprised at the immense strides made in the scientific analysis of social phenomena during the last half century. He will also be gratified to learn, that while this country is backward in almost every other science, and in scientific research generally, especially as compared with Germany, in sociology, thanks to the labors of Lester F.Ward, America holds a foremost place. Our social problems grow ever more acute and attract, in an ever-increasing degree, the serious attention of the thinking world. If these problems are ever to be solvedj the solution must be found in the scientific study of their causes and the scientific application of the knowledge derived from that study. For this reason, sociology makes a direct appeal to all who are interested in making the sad world better for our children than it has ever been for us. It is in the hope that this modest volume will make some small contribution in this direction, that the author sends it forth. Arthur M.Lewis. Chicago, Sept.28,
