This precursor to Mead's illuminating work, Male & Female, Sex & Temperament lays the groundwork for her lifelong study of gender differences. Focusing on three distinctly different tribes from New Guinea, Mead advances the theory that many so-called masculine and feminine characteristics are not based on fundamental sex differences, but reflect the cultural conditioning of different societies.
