Anthropological Perspectives on Kinship, Paperback Book

Anthropological Perspectives on Kinship Paperback

Part of the Anthropology, Culture and Society series



This authoritative introductory text takes into account the changes in the conceptualisation of kinship brought about by new reproductive technologies and the growing interest in culturally specific notions of personhood and gender.

Holy considers the extent to which Western assumptions have guided anthropological study of kinship in the past.

In the process, he reveals a growing sensitivity on the part of anthropologists to individual ideas of personhood and gender, and encourages further critical reflection on cultural bias in approaches to the subject.
