Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A generation of feminist research has explored the extent to which the roles--and expectations--of women and men vary across cultures. In this volume, leading anthropologists reflect on the evidence and theories, broadening the conventional field of comparison to include female/male relationships among nonhuman primates and introducing fresh case studies that range from lemurs to hominids, from Japanese peasants to male strippers in Florida, from skeletal remains of a Korean queen to mother/child conversations in Samoa. They document the rich and often surprising diversity in sex and gender hierarchies among both human and nonhuman primates.

Synopsis:

This edited collection attempts to revive a unified anthropological approach to the study of sex and gender hierarchies. Seventeen contributors from a wide range of disciplines offer their view and case studies.

Synopsis:

An interdisciplinary approach to sex and gender hierarchies in anthropology and archaeology by leading contributors.
