Edward Westermarck was a Finish sociologist writing about sexual mores, taboos, customs and traditions. This particular book was published in and reflects strong Darwinism, disproved racial theories, and the Victorian ethics of pre WWI British Empire. Nevertheless this book is crammed full of information concerning other cultures and peoples, if you can tolerate all the references to inferior, primitive races and men.
In reviewing the book, I believe that the author is attempting to be somewhat fair and critical of European society also, but he is so immersed in the culture and beliefs of his time that he fails in this objective. In answer to a previous review, yes this is vol. The beginning table of contents goes on forever and is badly formatted and has typos. Yet there is so much information presented, that even with the erroneous speculation and usual Victorian writing and errors, the book contains information that is not available elsewhere.
A fascinating book to be read with caution.
