Editorial Reviews

Review

"Very readable and attractively packaged, it would probably be an excellent text in a psychology course with a cross-cultural dimension - on child development, family life, cultural psychology, or women. The intent is to give the reader the feel of the culture and the people described. In this, Seymour eminently succeeds." APA Review of Books

Book Description

This book follows the lives of 24 families in India over a nearly 30-year period, documenting a family and gender system based upon principles of male solidarity and dominance, sexual segregation, and age and gender hierarchies. It focuses upon women of different socio-economic groups- their early socialization, their arranged marriages and abrupt transition to a strange household, and their gradual acquisition of status, power, and personal satisfaction. The book also documents a family and gender system in transition, adapting to recent forces of urbanization and modernization.

Format: Hardcover
This author has wrote her stories through a family (families) in Orissa, a state in Northeastern India - central coastline. I feel it is more sociological than anthropolical (and may be an easier read) than the book by Margaret Trawick (Notes on Love in a Tamil Family). However, I still find Margaret's book more enthralling!
