The Anthropology of Sibling Relations : Shared Parentage, Experience, and Exchange Hardback
Edited by Erdmute Alber, Cati Coe, Tatjana Thelen
Drawing on international case studies, the contributors extrapolate a systematization of the ways in which siblingship is conceived on the basis of shared parentage, shared childhoods, and reciprocal care.
They explore what makes these relations worth maintaining and how they contribute to community processes and to material and emotional survival.
