Rate this:
Celebrated anthropologist Margaret Mead, who studied sex in Samoa and child-rearing in New Guinea in the 1920s and 30s, was determined as the Second World War approached to show that anthropology could help sum up the national character of the most complex, modern societies and produce better wartime strategies. This book follows her and her closest collaborators to their triumphant climax when Mead was chosen to be one of the principal cultural ambassadors from America to Britain in 1943.
