Margaret Mead

Margaret Mead

American cultural anthropologist, who was frequently a featured writer and speaker in the mass media throughout the 1960s and 1970s.
I did not write it [Coming of Age in Samoa] as a popular book, but only with the hope that it would be intelligible to those who might make the best use of its theme, that adolescence need not be the time of stress and strain which Western society made it; that growing up could be freer and easier and less complicated; and also that there were prices to pay for the very lack of complication I found in Samoa - less intensity, less individuality, less involvement with life. /hope/ Margaret Mead quotes
