Exploring Twins presents an analysis of twinship considered as a specifically social phenomenon. Drawing upon a wide range of interdisciplinary, historical and cross-cultural data, Dr Stewart argues that in both traditional and modern societies, twinship represents a recurrent anomaly which calls into question the assumptions around which different types of society are organized. Part One identifies and analyses the fascinating range of cultural and disciplinary approaches to the interpretation of twinship, while Part Two considers the possibilities for a distinctively social analysis of twinship.

About the Author:

ELIZABETH STEWART lectures on the sociology of Soviet/Russian society at the London School of Economics. Her research interest in the social analysis of twinship arose from the birth of hew own twins. She is a member of the Twins and Multiple Births Association, the Multiple Birth Foundation and the International Society for Twin Studies.

Review:

"This book provides a real insight into the position of twins in society at different stages of human and academic development and into the way in which twins are used by different societies to reflect theories on the nature/nurture debate. For anyone wishing to learn more about how society has treated the twin relationship and possible reasons why this may be, Elizabeth Stewart has provided a thought-provoking starting point." -- Jane Ellison BSc, "Tamba" (Twins and Multiple Births Association) Past Chair and Trustee
"There has been too little study of the considerable social significance of twins...in society at large. Elizabeth Stewart's Study ranges widely through rich anthropological sources and the large body of material available from western literature, films, and news media." -- Elizabeth Bryam MD FRCP FRCPCH, President, " International Society for Twin Studies"
