"The contributors examine both the benefits and the burdens of kinship across cultures and explore how 'relatedness' is inextricably linked with other concepts which define people's identities, such as gender, power and history. With examples from a wide range of areas including Austria, Greenland, Portugal, Turkey and the Amazon, the book covers themes such as how people choose and activate kin; leadership, spiritual power and kinship; inheritance, marriage and social inequality; familial sentiment and economic interest; and the role of kinship in Utopian communes." "It will be of interest to undergraduates, postgraduates and academics in anthropology, and across the social sciences."--Jacket." ;
