Undertanding Human Relations (Kinship Systems)

Abstract : Everywhere humans structure their social field, amongst others, by way of what is called a kinship system. Such systems include aspects of language (kinship terminology), aspects of practice and strategy (marriage, normative behaviours) and aspects of transmission and social reproduction (inheritance and descent). This chapter provides the theoretical and methodological tools to investigate this important social field.
