History

Kinship Organization in India, first published in 1873, has become a standard work on Family Structure in India. The author, a distinguished anthropologist, has divided the country into different zones in accordance with the marriage practices followed in each. Her analysis of the southern marriage pattern, based on the chronological division of kin into older and younger kin rather than on the principle of generations, is an important contribution to Indian anthropology. This revised edition includes a new chapter which comprehensively surveys-property, succession and inheritance, topics of importance to all students of the subject. This book is in fact 'essential reading' for students of Indian social institutions.
