Description:
In this volume an international group of anthropologists and historians examines the complex relationships between family life, culture, and economic change in Latin America and the Caribbean. Dissatisfied with interpretations based on European experience, these scholars incorporate the particular histories, ideologies, and aspirations of New World peoples into analyses informed by general theory.

The study of kinship in Latin America has been in the past dominated by anthropologists concerned with primitive Indian groups. The few scholars who have investigated family life in urban or more developed rural groups have focused on what they believe to be the impact of modernization on traditional systems brought from Europe or carried forward from an Indian past. InKinship Ideology and Practice in Latin America, the contributors show that, contrary to the belief that urbanization and economic development lead to individualism, social atomization, and the dissolution of the family, the rich as well as the poor of Latin America are sustained by, and use, extensive kinship ties.
