The most comprehensive reader on kinship available, Kinship and Family: An Anthropological Reader is a representative collection tracing the history of the anthropological study of kinship from the early 1900s to the present day. * Brings together for the first time both classic works from Evans-Pritchard, Levi-Strauss, Leach, and Schneider, as well as articles on such electrifying contemporary debates as surrogate motherhood, and gay and lesbian kinship. * Draws on the editors' complementary areas of expertise to offer readers a single-volume survey of the most important and critical work on kinship. * Includes extensive discussion and analysis of the selections that contextualizes them within theoretical debates.
