About the Author

I learned about the places of convergence and difference between mother and daughter, but mostly of the solidarity and pride about the rich body of information, theoretical and methodological contributions, made by both of her parents. The memoir, which includes Bateson's father, Gregory Bateson, is studded with thoughtful opinion - nuggets I hope for in a reflective piece.
I learned that Mead valued conflict as the birthplace of creativity, that she deeply honored individuality and that for her, variation and difference presented opportunities for something new to emerge.
Bateson expresses it well: " Margaret felt, I believe, that by supplying new metaphors and additional layers of insight, errors would be balanced."
Bateson contends that for decades to come, the sayings of her mother will be cherished, comments such as " Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. For indeed, that's all who ever have."
The lenses through which Bateson views her imperfect parents are fog-free. Her comments are from the heart.
