    Andrew Lang, J. J. Atkinson
1903. While best known for his translations of classical literature and as a collector of folk and fairy tales, Lang also wrote poetry, biographies, histories, novels, literary criticisms and even children's books. Lang's versatility was also shown in his works on folklore and on primitive religion. In Social Origins Lang deals with the origins of totemism, which is defined as the belief that people are descended from animals, plants, and other natural objects. Primal Law was written by James Jasper Atkinson, who, through study and observation conceived of what he regarded as the origin of morality concerning the family.
