William Graham Sumner is primarily remembered as an opponent of government intervention in social and economic issues. He was also a comparative ethnographer who developed classifications and sociological concepts that continue to influence the discipline today. This book presents key excerpts from Sumner's fundamental work, Folkways (1906), and also includes five original essays by contemporary authorities that explain and explore Sumner's importance and influence. By linking Sumner's work to contemporary research, these new essays confirm his status as a foundational thinker in the field.
