Kinship and Marriage by Robin Fox
Book DescriptionRobin Fox's study of systems of kinship and alliance has become an established classic of the social science literature. It has been praised above all for its liveliness of style and clarity of exposition in an area that students and general readers have found difficult to master. It was the first attempt to produce an overview of this central subject and has maintained its unique position over the years. Fox's reconciliation of 'descent' and 'alliance' theories, and his 'deductive' approach to the logic of kinship systems based on four universal premises, give the book its distinctive flavour and make it not only the best available introductory text but a contribution to theory in its own right. It has been used throughout the world as an introduction for both academic and lay readers and has been translated into numerous languages.

Books By Author Robin Fox
Tribal Imagination, Hardback (March 2011)
Fox traces our ongoing struggle to maintain open societies in the face of profoundly tribal human needs that, paradoxically, hold the key to our survival. This latest book ranges from incest and arranged marriage to poetry and myth, from human rights and vengeance to pop icons such as Seinfeld.
Dr. Apple's Symptoms Encyclopedia, Hardback (June 2009)
This book makes sense out of the complext world of symptoms. It does this by revealing how a doctor thinks when faced with patients telling them their stories, that is, by ranking the possible diagnosis in terms of probability. For the first time in a popular medical guide, all the symptoms one might reasonably experience are put into perspective.
Keresan Bridge, Hardback (January 1967)» View all books by Robin Fox
An excursion into American Indian culture history by a British social anthropologist. This book examines theories of the development of different Pueblo social structures, paying attention to Eggan. It concludes that the theory that all Pueblos were derived from a common base is not tenable, and that a diversity of origins is more probable.
