I have a problem with how she conducted her ethnographic work. In short, most of the sexual practice from the Samoan perspective can very well be false due to Meads inability to speak Samoan, and therefore not even understand the subjects intentions. Nor did Mead have any translators.

Excellent view into how primal cultures have structures that permeate temperament and roles across gender. A necessity for any sociologist or anthropologist. Good condition, fast shipping.
Margaret Mead provided the foundation for many of the attitudes and philosophies of the mid-century's women's movement. Her insights into the culturally-based gender roles was a cornerstone in our understanding of humanity. This profound study of three very different societies, seperated by geography in remote New Guinea, clearly showed that culture can control our behavior. We can only conclude by her research that we must allow freedom for the individual, first and foremost, if we are to fully reach our potential as individuals.
