The emphasis [of this book is] on the building of theory ... The book's strength ... is that it tries to present the theories in ways that make them testable, at least in principle.

The book organizes chapters in seven sections, roughly corresponding to distinctive theoretical orientations: functional, evolutionary, conflict, critical, exchange, interactionist, and structuralist theorizing.-Pref.

On the origins of human emotions : a sociological inquiry into the evolution of human affect by Jonathan H Turner ( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 644 libraries worldwide
"Language and culture are often seen as unique characteristics of human beings. In this book the author argues that our ability to use a wide array of emotions evolved long before spoken language and, in fact, constituted a preadaptation for the speech and culture that developed among later hominids. Long before humans could speak with words, they communicated their emotional dispositions through body language; and it is the neurological wiring of the brain for these emotional languages that represented the key evolutionary breakthrough for our species."--BOOK JACKET.

In this [book the author] offers a ... grounded reinterpretation of social evolution.

Only by exploring the larger macrodynamics can the institutions of economy, kinship, religion, polity, law, and education be fully understood, as [he] shows in this magisterial explication of twenty millennia of human social life.-Back cover.
