Description


What Social Classes Owe To Each Other is a book written by American sociologist and economist William Graham Sumner. Originally published in 1883, the book explores the concept of social responsibility and the relationship between different social classes. Sumner argues that each social class has its own duties and obligations towards society, and that these duties are not necessarily equal or interchangeable. He contends that the wealthy and powerful have a responsibility to use their resources and influence for the greater good, while the poor and working classes have a duty to work hard and contribute to society in their own way. Sumner also delves into the role of government in regulating social relations and the potential consequences of excessive interference. Overall, What Social Classes Owe To Each Other is a thought-provoking and influential work that continues to be relevant today.This Is A New Release Of The Original 1883 Edition.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
