Rarely do science and literature come together in the same book. When they do -- as in Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, for example -- they become classics, quoted and studied by scholars and the general public alike. Margaret Mead accomplished this remarkable feat not once but several times, beginning with Coming of Age in Samoa. It details her historic journey to American Samoa, taken where she was just twenty-three, where she did her first fieldwork. Here, for the first time, she presented to the public the idea that the individual experience of developmental stages could be shaped by cultural demands and expectations. Adolescence, she wrote, might be more or less stormy, and sexual development more or less problematic in different cultures. The "civilized" world, she taught us had much to learn from the "primitive." Now this groundbreaking, beautifully written work as been reissued for the centennial of her birth, featuring introductions by Mary Pipher and by Mead's daughter, Mary Catherine Bateson. Annotation.

This should have all the things I like in a book, but it had almost none of them. Culture, society human nature etc., and then to realize she is highly criticized for not presenting these truthfully? This left me feeling cheated and wasting my time. I also found it very hard to read and make sense of her issues and points? She was obviously in her own dream world. ( )

Alan dedicated this to Jonathan and Hanne "thought you might find this interesting, love, Alan".

As a resident of Samoa when I re-read this book, it is wonderful to see how traditional lifestyles have changed so little & with so few problems. But Freeman was right - she got the free sex bit wrong - where were all the accidental babies? And what's this about pregnancy only occurring from long monogamous flings??!!

I felt like I needed to read it because it is a classic. I am sure back in the day it was innovative and shocking. However, reading it today it seemed politically incorrect, naive, and patronizing. The idea of reading it was better than the actual reading it. ( )
