Margaret Mead and Samoa

Type of Material: 
Documentary film


Wombat Film & Video, New York, 1988, 51 mins. Does a wonderful job of examining the Margaret Mead - Derek Freeman controversy, and includes an interview with one of Mead's former informants. I use it as an illustration of some of the problems attending emic research and its interpretation.
