One of the first steps in sociology, as in any science, is a systematic classification of the phenomena with which it deals.

Numerous dichotomous classification of societies are put forth by different sociologists e.g. Tonnies Gemeinschaft and Gesellschaft, Durkheion’s mechanical solidarity and organic solidarity, Maine’s status and contract, Spencer’s militant and industrial societies. Most of these classifications implied an evolutionary scheme. According to Comte’s law of three stages human thought developed from the theological through the metaphysical to the positive stage.

Well-researched material on developmental sociology is presented in this volume which will prove a veritable mine of information to all concerned. Topics given elaborate treatment herein are: Social formation and maintenance of human attributes; similarities and differences between human and animal societies; social structure, societies and civilizations; social problems; sociology, social policy and social planning; new approach to sociology; sociological connection; an exploration of sociological concepts; socialist strategies of development; family and kinship; social stratification; caste; racism and stratification; social organization; etc.
