The Mead-Freeman Controversy in Review.
Cote, James, E.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v29 n5 p525 Oct 2000
The five articles of this special issue focus on research in Samoa by Margaret Mead in the 1920s and subsequent assertions by D. Freeman that Mead was misled in her conclusions about Samoan culture, specifically about premarital sexual behavior by adolescents. In this issue, authors characterize and review key aspects of the debate, attempting to put into context issues that are likely to remain matters of opinion. (SLD)
