About this title

Synopsis:

In 1971 Marilyn Strathern provided what has now become a classic ethnographic text, Women In Between. Significantly, this pioneering contribution to feminist anthropology focuses on gender relations rather than on women alone. Re-issued now, Women in Between examines the attitudes of the Hagen people and analyzes the power of women in their male-dominated system. Strathern cites case studies of marriage arrangements, divorce, and traditional settlement disputes to illustrate women's status in Hagen society.

About the Author:

Marilyn Strathern is professor of social anthropology at the University of Cambridge, England. She is the 2003 recipient of the Viking Fund Medal in Anthropology. Among her many writings are The Gender of the Gift (University of California Press) Kinship at the Core (Cambridge University Press), and Partial Connections (Rowman & Littlefield).
