It is the posthumous product of a long collaboration between two distinguished anthropologists, Ruth Benedict, who died in 1948, and Margaret Mead, who was first her pupil, then her friend and colleague, and now her literary executor and biographer. The approach can best be described in Ruth Benedict's own phrase: that a culture is "a personality writ large." It is a people's culture that binds them together, and culture is inherited not biologically but through customs handed down from one generation to another. As each individual is related to his cultural background, so is each culture related to the general background. This theory is illuminated and its development shown through a careful selection from Benedict's articles, journals, and correspondence, woven into a continuous narrative and amplified by Mead. From this narrative, there emerges the figure of a complex and fascinating woman, at once diffident and determined, gentle and inflexible, affectionate and solitary. The paradox of Benedict's life as daughter, wife, student, teacher, poet, researcher, and writer is interpreted by the lucid and perceptive observations which introduce each section and make this book by two of the foremost anthropologists of our generation unique.--From publisher description190718ocn000192224book19650.28Mead, MargaretFamilyPictorial works188053ocn000176303book19370.53Mead, MargaretCooperation and competition among primitive peoples"This text has been written rather compactly.

The first met when Mead was Benedict's student at Barnard in the 1920s; their professional association and their friendship were close and lasting. Beginning with Benedict's early life, Mead discusses her long struggle, as a woman, to attain an identity of her own, her early interests as a writer and poet, and her reasons for laying aside poetry for full-time scholarship. She grappled with the problems of a middle-class marriage and suburban household and eventually broke away to establish herself as a scholar and writer of distinction. As an anthropologist, her fame spread far beyond her profession with the publication of her first book, Patterns of Culture. With the coming of World War II, Benedict shifted her attention to an anthropological study of contemporary, highly developed cultures. The culmination of this interest was the publication of The Chrysanthemum and the Sword and the establishment of the Columbia University Research in Contemporary Cultures project, a broad-based interdisciplinary research project which she headed until her untimely death in 1948. Complementing the biography are seven selections from Benedict's writings which show the range of her thought as well as the beauty of her writing, including her lecture as retiring President of the American Anthropological Association.--From publisher description13266ocn000533699book19720.33Mead, MargaretTwentieth century faith: hope and survival12849ocn001583948book19750.31Mead, MargaretWorld enough : rethinking the future384220ocn000393375book19720.24Mead, MargaretBlackberry winter; my earlier yearsBiographyRecords and correspondenceThe autobiography of a pioneer, this is Margaret Mead's story of her life as a woman and as an anthropologist.

Close friends for much of their lives, Ruth Benedict and Margaret Mead met at Barnard College in 1922, when Mead was a student, Benedict a teacher. They became sexual partners (though both married), and pioneered in the then male-dominated discipline of anthropology. They championed racial and sexual equality and cultural relativity despite the generally racist, xenophobic, and homophobic tenor of their era. Mead's best-selling Coming of Age in Samoa (1928) and Sex and Temperament in Three Primitive Societies (1935), and Benedict's Patterns of Culture (1934), Race (1940), and The Chrysanthemum and the Sword (1946), were landmark studies that ensured the lasting prominence and influence of their authors in the field of anthropology and beyond. With unprecedented access to the complete archives of the two women--including hundreds of letters opened to scholars in 2001--Lois Banner examines the impact of their difficult childhoods and the relationship between them in the context of their circle of family, friends, husbands, lovers, and colleagues, as well as the calamitous events of their time. She shows how Benedict inadvertently exposed Mead to charges of professional incompetence, discloses the serious errors New Zealand anthropologist Derek Freeman made in his famed attack on Mead's research on Samoa, and reveals what happened in New Guinea when Mead and colleagues engaged in a ritual aimed at overturning all gender and sexual boundaries+-+20890942159202ocn005235195book19790.27Mead, MargaretMargaret Mead, some personal viewsInterviews8917ocn013424374book19860.47Holmes, Lowell DQuest for the real Samoa : the Mead/Freeman controversy & beyond+-+85664324353248204ocn039223702book19980.35Freeman, DerekThe fateful hoaxing of Margaret Mead : a historical analysis of her Samoan researchBiographyFor most of the twentieth century, Margaret Mead's renowned book, Coming of Age in Samoa, has validated an antievolutionary anthropological paradigm that assumes that culture is the overwhelming determinant of human behavior. Her account of female adolescent sexuality in Samoa initiated a career that led to Margaret Mead becoming "indisputably the most publicly celebrated scientist in America." But what if her study wasn't all it appeared to be? What if, having neglected the problem she had been sent to investigate, she relied at the last moment on the tales of two traveling companions who jokingly misled her about the sexual behavior of Samoan girls? What if her famous study was based on a hoax? In The Fateful Hoaxing of Margaret Mead, Derek Freeman addresses these issues in a detailed historical analysis of Margaret Mead's Samoan research and of her training in New York by Franz Boas and Ruth Benedict. By examining hitherto unpublished correspondence between Mead; her mentor, Franz Boas; and others - as well as the sworn testimony of Fa'apua'a Fa'amu, one of Mead's traveling companions of 1926 - Freeman provides compelling evidence that one of the most influential anthropological studies of the twentieth century was unwittingly based on the mischievous joking of the investigator's informants. The book is more than a correction of scientific error: It is a crucial step toward rethinking the foundations of social science and the overly relativistic worldview of much of the modern world+-+95108886357905ocn191758295book20080.35Lutkehaus, NancyMargaret Mead : the making of an American iconBiographyUsing photographs, films, television appearances, and materials from newspapers, magazines, and scholarly journals, this text explores the ways in which Margaret Mead became an American cultural heroine+-+96945564157711ocn004569938book19800.06Epstein, SamShe never looked back : Margaret Mead in SamoaJuvenile worksBiographyA brief biography of the well-known anthropologist concentrating on her first important studies in Samoa in the mid-1920's7571ocn004775810book19790.06Johnson, SpencerThe value of understanding : the story of Margaret MeadJuvenile worksBiographyA biography, stressing the understanding and tolerance, of an anthropologist who did extensive studies of primitive cultures72711ocn002591010book19760.59Schwartz, TheodoreSocialization as cultural communication : development of a theme in the work of Margaret Mead6832ocn004884815book19790.06Rice, EdwardMargaret Mead : a portraitJuvenile worksA biography of Margaret Mead as seen through her work6024ocn023731621book19920.66Foerstel, LenoraConfronting the Margaret Mead legacy : scholarship, empire, and the South PacificThe legendary Margaret Mead established the importance and relevance of anthropology in the public mind and presented to Americans the view that theirs was among many cultures. She was at once shaped by the influences in the American intellectual community of the 1920s and, in turn, she was later to contribute to the image that the world has of the South Pacific. Moreover, Mead and her followers promoted sensationalized and inaccurate depictions of Pacific peoples as primitives defined primarily by sexuality or cannibalism. This book reveals the consequences of such Western condescension and integrates the views of U.S. and Pacific scholars in a historic critique of the products connected to the ethnographic enterprise in the Pacific. Destined to be highly controversial, this collection of articles provides for the first time a multicultural perspective on Margaret Mead's impact on Western anthropology and her views of colonialism, imperialism, and strategic and business interests in the South Pacific as well as Southeast Asia. The contributors, most of them active supporters of a nuclear-free and independent Pacific, use different styles and discourses to observe that it is only in the anthropological imagination that Pacific cultures are exotic paradises and sites of clan warfare. The authors demonstrate how these societies are still portrayed out of context with certain crucial issues ignored by Western scholars, for example, unemployment, colonialism, nuclear testing, and radiation poisoning. As such, the participants go beyond postmodernism and merely talking about the relationship between who "sees" and what is seen, by affirming the relevance of indigenous Pacific concepts as a new way to link scholarship and accountability. Acknowledging anthropology's contribution to stereotypes of savagery and exoticism, the contributors propose a global anthropology that is non-hierarchical, advocacy based, and cognizant of North-South relationships. Their conclusions will make anthropologists reevaluate the field and their relationships to the people they study. The impressive list of contributors includes: Warilea Iamo, Papua New Guinea's first anthropologist and current director of the National Research Institute; John D. Waiko, first Papua New Guinean historian and Professor of History at the University of Papua New Guinea; Nahau Rooney, the first woman parliamentarian of Papua New Guinea, former Minister for Justice, and one of Mead's "informants"; Susanna Ounei, a leader in the struggle for New Caledonian independence; the late Eleanor Leacock, renowned feminist anthropologist; Peter Worsley, the eminent British sociologist; Glenn Alcalay, researcher in medical anthropology and advocate for rights of radiation victims; Simione Durutalo, lecturer at the University of the South Pacific in Fiji; and the editors+-+31337722355952ocn020089209book19900.06Ziesk, EdraMargaret MeadJuvenile worksBiographyA biography of the now legendary anthropologist famous for her studies of primitive cultures+-+7211190006+-+2924583315+-+2924583315Fri Mar 21 15:43:37 EDT 2014batch92821
