Minor ink marks. 1962 Mass Market Paperback. 176 pp. Margaret Mead's psychological study of youth in a primitive society, is today recognized as a scientific classic. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Margaret Mead (December 16, 1901 November 15, 1978) was an American cultural anthropologist, who was frequently a featured writer and speaker in the mass media throughout the 1960s and 1970s. She was both a popularizer of the insights of anthropology into modern American and Western culture, and also a respected, if controversial, academic anthropologist. Her reports about the attitudes towards sex in South Pacific and Southeast Asian traditional cultures amply informed the 1960s sexual revolution. Mead was a champion of broadened sexual mores within a context of traditional western religious life. An Anglican Christian, she played a considerable part in the drafting of the 1979 American Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. She was a recognizable figure in academia, usually wearing a distinctive cape and carrying a tall, forked walking stick.
