Printed in black ink, back cover: by BRONISLAW MALINOWSKI/The first anthropologist to apply psychoanalytic/theory to the study of primitive life, Dr. Malinowski /spent many years studying native communities in the/Melanesian Islands. In this book, he analyzes the con-/stitution of the family, comparing these typical matri-/archal communities with our own patriarchal society./The first part of the volume deals with the formation/of the complex as mental by-product of the creation/of culture; the second, with complexes in Melanesian/myths, dreams, obscene language, and mental disor-/ders; the third, with the relationship between psycho-/analysis and anthropology; and the fourth, with in-/stinct and culture. In this last, the author sets forth/his views on the origin of culture, pioneering dis-/cussion in the field which Dr. Malinowski describes/as “the ‘no-specialist’s-land’ between the science of/man and that of animal.”/All Meridian Books are Smyth-Sewn for Durability.
