Notes "Most of the contributions were first presented at a symposium on Kinship and Culture, held at Burg Wartenstein, Austria, August 20-29, 1966, under the sponsorship of the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, New York City. They were then more or less revised by each contributor in light of the discussions at the symposium."
