Book Description

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. The book 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; and, includes extensive discussion and analysis of the selections that contextualizes them within theoretical debates.

Evil may be said to be shadowy, mysterious, covert, and associated with night, darkness, secrecy. It is a force acting to destroy the integrity, happiness and welfare of a normala society. It is at once the cause and the explanation of misfortune, of the wretchedness of human existence, and of our own individual wrongdoing.
