Summary

Linda Stone'sKinship and Genderis the product of years of teaching the-usually separate-fields of kinship and gender. She has found the topic of kinship comes alive when linked to gender issues; conversely, the cross-cultural study of gender benefits from a working knowledge of kinship. This essential book successfully merges these two disciplines, demonstrating their relevance to the reader's own life and enhancing his or her understanding of other cultures. Fourteen case studies throughout the book illuminate the intricate connections between kinship and gender across a variety of cultural groups. The fourth edition features a new chapter that reveals how kinship structures and related gender roles underlie many current social problems around the world. Also new to this edition are two original case studies and listings of useful websites to aid further research.
