"This work constitutes the first book-length examination of Balinese kinship in English and an important theoretical analysis of the central ethnographic concept of 'kinship system'. Hildred and Clifford Geertz maintain that the prevailing anthropological notion of a kinship system as an autonomous set of institutionalized social relationships is brought into question by their findings. Their research in Bali suggests that kinship cannot be studied in isolation but must be perceived as a symbolic subsystem governed by ideas and beliefs unique to each culture. " ISBN: 0226285154.
