9780520058491: Lewis Henry Morgan and the Invention of Kinship

Lewis Henry Morgan of Rochester, New York, lawyer and pioneer anthropologist, was the leading American contributor of his generation to the social sciences. Among the classic works whose conjunction in the 1860s gave modern anthropology its shape, Morgan's massive and technical Systems of Consanguinity and Affinity of the Human Family was decisive. Thomas Trautmann offers a new interpretation of the genesis of "kinship," and of the role it played in late nineteenth-century intellectual history.

About the Author:

Thomas R. Trautmann is Professor of History and Anthropology at the University of Michigan.

Review:

"Morgan's methods and assumptions -- especially his emphases on kin terms, and on their genealogical referents (have informed all subsequent anthropology down to the present day. . . . [Trautmann] provides a fascinating insight into one of the founding texts of modern anthropology." (Anthony Good, Times Literary Supplement
