The fateful hoaxing of Margaret Mead : a historical analysis of her Samoan research by Derek Freeman( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 867 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For most of the twentieth century, Margaret Mead's renowned book, Coming of Age in Samoa, has validated an antievolutionary anthropological paradigm that assumes that culture is the overwhelming determinant of human behavior. Her account of female adolescent sexuality in Samoa initiated a career that led to Margaret Mead becoming "indisputably the most publicly celebrated scientist in America." But what if her study wasn't all it appeared to be? What if, having neglected the problem she had been sent to investigate, she relied at the last moment on the tales of two traveling companions who jokingly misled her about the sexual behavior of Samoan girls? What if her famous study was based on a hoax? In The Fateful Hoaxing of Margaret Mead, Derek Freeman addresses these issues in a detailed historical analysis of Margaret Mead's Samoan research and of her training in New York by Franz Boas and Ruth Benedict. By examining hitherto unpublished correspondence between Mead; her mentor, Franz Boas; and others - as well as the sworn testimony of Fa'apua'a Fa'amu, one of Mead's traveling companions of 1926 - Freeman provides compelling evidence that one of the most influential anthropological studies of the twentieth century was unwittingly based on the mischievous joking of the investigator's informants. The book is more than a correction of scientific error: It is a crucial step toward rethinking the foundations of social science and the overly relativistic worldview of much of the modern world

Iban OC06( )

in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Iban are an indigenous group in Sarawak, a state of Malaysia, on the island of Borneo. This file on the Iban consists of 35 documents. The dates covered by the literature are from ca. 1840-1990. Predominant themes are agriculture (primarily rice cultivation), culture history, migrations, religion, and warfare (including much information on head-hunting). The works of Freeman, one of the outstanding modern authorities on the Iban, used in conjunction with the earlier descriptive accounts of Low, Howell, and Gomes, and supplemented by the more recent ethnographies of Pringle, Sutlive, Wagner, Benedict Sandin, and Padoch, provide a good overall view of Iban culture and society
