Kinship in Action is a descriptive and comprehensive investigation of family, marriage, and other kinship related notions that provides us with ethnographic accounts from many different parts of the world. The text also provides us with a historical background of kinship studies and an appreciation of the importance of kinship. Through this book, Andrew Strathern and Pamela J. Stewart support their explanations of kinship-related phenomena with colorful examples from a variety of field sites such as Papua New Guinea, Scotland, Ireland, Austronesian Southeast Asia, China, and Taiwan.
