Overview

Students of anthropology are expected to acquire a sound knowledge of kinship. When taught without the link to gender, the basics of anthropological kinship can be boring and tedious. Kinship and Gender, Third Edition successfully links the two concepts, bringing the topics alive for students and demonstrating their relevancy to the students' own lives and understanding of other cultures. This third edition features a new section on kinship theory. Two new case studies are also included that address more recent and novel forms of kinship and family in Euro-American families and new reproductive technologies that challenge traditional notions of kinship in societies all over the world.
