The purpose of this book is to show what the experimental approach to the understanding of social behavior of human beings has yielded and what it may rightfully be expected to yield. There is no doubt that the authors have fully accomplished their purpose, for it is at once a sane, if not too long, presentation; there are 709 pages.

It is divided into three parts headed: "Basic Principles," "A Genetic Study of Social Behavior" and "General Laws of Social Interaction in Our Own Society." At the end of each chapter there are a bibliography, an author's index and a subject index. The book is too long for review. It is, however, welcome for its sanity and the completeness of its presentation.
