C. Peter Timmer review of Hunger as a Factor – American J of Sociology
Posted here (PDF above):
review of Pitirim A Sorokin, Hunger as a Factor in Human Affairs; translated by Elena P. Sorokin
reviewed by C. Peter Timmer
American Journal of Sociology, Vol. 82, No. 4 (January 1977), pp. 912-914
I disagree with the conclusions drawn by Timmer at the end of the review with respect to Sorokin’s conclusions (reached by Sorokin in the book’s concluding pages) about the relationship between hunger and statism.
