Abstract

THE learned and ingenious author of “Primitive Marriage” has in this volume republished that excellent work, appending to it his paper on “Kinship in Ancient Greece,” which originally appeared in the Fortnightly Review, and some essays, in which he discusses Bachofen's “Das Mutterrecht,” Morgan's work on Relationships, Sir Henry Maine's views on the constitution of the Ancient Irish Family, and the chapter on Marriage in my “Origin of Civilisation.”
