9780060975739: With a Daughter's Eye: Memoir of Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson, A

In With a Daughter's Eye, writer and cultural anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson looks back on her extraordinary childhood with two of the world's legendary anthropologists, Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson. This deeply human and illuminating portrait sheds new light on her parents' prodigious achievements and stands alone as an important contribution for scholars of Mead and Bateson. But for readers everywhere, this engaging, poignant, and powerful book is first and foremost a singularly candid memoir of a unique family by the only person who could have written it.

Review:

"[A]n utter absorbing account of Mead and Bateson's relationship...[This] book is clearly a classic."-- "Natural History magazine"A beautifully written book...Remarkably honest, rich in poetry, yet, at the same time, full of 'longing and anger.'"-- "San Francisco Chronicle
