This is perhaps the greatest of this famous anthropologist's works. After graduating from Columbia University, where she met her great mentors Franz Boas and Ruth Benedict, and after completing her masters in psychology at the same school (1924) Mead (1901-1978) left for the island of Tau in Samoa, where she observed the development of native children through puberty and adolescence. She continued writing about the subjects of sex and gender roles among peoples of the Pacific and East Indies, and her culminating work in this area was the present volume, in which she examines traditional male-female relationships and discusses such topics as the mothers influence in perpetuating male and female roles and the different concepts of marriage held by various cultures. The substance of this book was originally given as The Jacob Gimbel Lectures in Sex Psychology under the auspices of Stanford University and the University of California, San Francisco, California. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
