Margaret Mead: Bringing World Cultures Togetherby Michael Pollard
At the age of 24 and fresh out of college, Margaret Mead set out alone from Philadelphia to Samoa to do 8 months of research into a virtually unknown people. It was the beginning of a career during which she was to overturn many cherished Western beliefs about the family, child-rearing, and the roles of the sexes in society. Although her work has been widely criticized, many of her views have been gradually accepted, and she has become one of the inspirations of the feminist movement.
