1905. While best known for his translations of classical literature and as a collector of folk and fairy tales, Lang also wrote poetry, biographies, histories, novels, literary criticisms and even children's books. Lang's versatility was also shown in his works on folklore and on primitive religion. This book is a natural sequel to Social Origins and Primal Law, where he dealt with the origins of totemism, which is defined as the belief that people are descended from animals, plants, and other natural objects. Contents: Origin of Totemism; Method of Inquiry; Theory of Primal Promiscuity; The Arunta Anomaly; The Theories of Dr. Durkheim; The Author's Theory; Rise of Phratries and Totem Kins; A New Point Explained; Totemic Redistribution; Matrimonial Classes; and Mr. Frazer's Theory of Totemism.
