Based on a study of the Israeli kibbutz movement, "Gender and Culture" discusses the differences in male and female orientations to marriage, the family, and work. Spiro describes the counterrevolution in the kibbutz movement as it evolved over a quarter century period. He addresses questions concerning the perennial issue of the universal and the particular in female (and male) psychology. A special feature of this book is its historical and anthropological approach. Studying the same community after a twenty-five-year interval enables readers to observe the children of the first study as adults in the follow-up study.
"Melford E. Spiro" is the author.
