Translated by: V. Gordon Childe. Taking Egypt and the Ancient East as the subject matter, this analysis of early society seeks to show the beginnings of social order and its first steps onto the ladder that leads to classical civilization of the ancient and modern world.

Full Description

This book covers in a systematic way, both theoretically and historically, totemic organization, individualized and communistic power, the progress from clans and kingdoms, especially in ancient Egypt and the Semitic world, the empires of Iran and the Barbarian invasions.
