Description
Building on classical social theory, this volume proposes an original and comprehensive systems theory of sociocultural stability and change, which combines ecological-social relationships with social structures and culture. Relationships and concepts developed by Marx, Weber, Malthus, Spencer, and Durkheim are explained and synthesized into a coherent perspective, which is used to examine multiple institutions in modern industrial societiesz

Elwell argues that recent changes in the economy, the family, higher education, and the political system, as well as changes in cultural ideas and ideologies, are interrelated and rooted in massive changes in population size and industrial processes. By systematically relating the analysis of these sociocultural phenomena to the whole and to one another, this volume presents a framework that can serve to organize and integrate many diverse theories, insights, and empirical information into a comprehensive worldview.
