Editorial Reviews

Review

"Max Holland has demonstrated extraordinarily thorough scholarship in his exhaustive review of the often contentious discussions of kinship. He has produced a balanced synthesis melding the two approaches exemplified in the biological and sociocultural behavioral positions. His work in reconciling opposing views clearly demonstrates the value of interdisciplinary approaches.This should be the definitive word on the subject."
- Irwin Bernstein, Distinguished Research Professor of Primatology, Georgia


"A brilliant discussion of the relationship between kinship and social bonding as understood in evolutionary biology and in sociocultural anthropology."
- Kirk Endicott, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, Dartmouth


"Unlike many commentators who have tackled kinship in the context of biology, Holland takes culture seriously and deals fairly with Schneider's arguments. He acknowledges, correctly in my opinion, that culture and biology are both important but are largely relevant to separate questions. This book helps to untangle a long-standing disciplinary muddle."
- Richard Feinberg, Professor of Anthropology, Kent State

This genuinely original thesis... will (with any luck) put paid to prevailing misapplications of inclusive fitness theory in Evolutionary Psychology and Darwinian Anthropology. The scholarship is excellent... his ability to convey his argument clearly and without intellectual posturing makes it a pleasure to read - Christina Toren, Anthropologist

Format: Kindle Edition
Intriguing research in social bonding and kinship. Taking in account diverse perspectives, but also correlating scientific views of sociology, anthropology, biology and psychology. A very good way to understand how relationships are built up in our societies.
