About the Book
This edition is a comprehensive and critical analysis of the context, content, as well as the contemporary relevance of Social Darwinism which has been quite instrumental in evolving the concept of society as a functional unity as well as the cross-cultural methods of comparative study and analysis of social problems. Even today, Social Darwinism is regarded as a systematic approach to the study of social change both by way of description and explanation. It is hoped that the observations and findings of this edition will be helpful in future research.
