'Social Rule - A Study of the Will to Power' is a fascinating treatise on society by Elsie C. Parsons, exploring in particular how power structures are created and operate within various different cultures around the world and in history. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in anthropology or sociology, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Parson’s seminal work. Contents include: 'The Satisfaction - from The Social Categories', 'Juniors', 'Women', 'Slaves And Servants', 'Wage-Earners', '’Backward’ Peoples', 'Delinquents And Defectives', 'The ’Lower’ Animals', 'The Dead', 'The Good', 'Self', 'The Satisfaction from Science', etc. Elsie Worthington Clews Parsons (1875 - 1941) was an American sociologist, anthropologist, folklorist, and feminist. She was famous for studying Native American tribes including the Tewa and Hopi, as well as for helping found 'The New School'. She was elected the first female president of the American Anthropological Association (1941) just before her death. Other notable works by this author include: 'The Social Organization of the Tewa of New Mexico' (1929), 'Hopi and Zuni Ceremonialism' (1933), and 'Pueblo Indian Religion' (1939). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork. 3
