It includes histories and comparisons of human gestures, ceremonial behaviour, religious issuses, different education, and other sociological topics. Morris also deals with philosophy of social behvior such as the concept of sport, conflict and hunting.
It is a fascinating book. And is compelling reading.
This man's books are a must have for anyone who wants to better understand why the people around him (or her) do the strange things they do. While every theory may not be perfect, his works demonstrate a classic scientific method of discovery through social observation that remains useful in any situation
