He fully explores the concept here, examining their influence on: the struggle for existence labor and wealth slavery abortion, infanticide, and the killing of the elderly cannibalism sex and marriage blood revenge and primitive justice sacral harlotry and child sacrifice popular sports and drama education and history and much more. American academic and author WILLIAM GRAHAM SUMNER (1840-1910) wrote numerous and varied books including Andrew Jackson as a Public Man (1882) and What Social Classes Owe to Each Other (1883).
