9780060934958: Sex and Temperament: In Three Primitive Societies

This precursor to Mead's illuminating work, Male & Female, Sex & Temperament lays the groundwork for her lifelong study of gender differences. Focusing on three distinctly different tribes from New Guinea, Mead advances the theory that many so-called masculine and feminine characteristics are not based on fundamental sex differences, but reflect the cultural conditioning of different societies.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2002. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. First published in 1935, Sex Temperament is a fascinating and brilliant anthropological study of the intimate lives of three New Guinea tribes from infancy to adulthood.

This edition, prepared for the centennial of Mead s birth, features introductions by Helen Fisher and Mead s daughter, Mary Catherine Bateson. A precursor to Mead s illuminating Male Female, Sex Temperament lays the groundwork for her lifelong study of gender differences. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780060934958
