Sibling Relationships in Cross-Cultural Perspective.
Cicirelli, Victor G.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v56 n1 p7-20 Feb 1994
Comparisons between sibling relationships in industrialized and nonindustrialized societies revealed differences in how siblings are defined, cultural norms regulating sibling role responsibilities, importance of sibling structure variables, sibling caretaking and socialization, relationship between siblings, and range of variation in sibling behaviors. Sibling relations in industrialized societies tended to be discretionary whereas those in nonindustrialized societies were obligatory. (Author/NB)
