"All would agree on the influence of the voluminous oeuvre of L�vi-Strauss within the history of the Human Sciences. To come to terms with it, we need a reliable guide, such as this. Students of kinship, myth, or mythical thinking may disagree with some of Godelier's positions, but have here a splendid basis on which to build."
--Nick Allen, University of Oxford

"Maurice Godelier, eminent French anthropologist, surveys and assesses, sympathetically and critically, the mass of writings on kinship and mythology of another eminent French anthropologist, Claude L�vi-Strauss. This deep engagement of the one with the other is, for readers, both a pleasure and a powerful tool."
--Thomas R. Trautmann, Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan

"Cuts through the fog of commentary surrounding the legacy of this most enigmatic of scholars, to address L�vi-Strauss's legacy in its own, properly anthropological terms. The book is a joy to read." --Tim Ingold, University of Aberdeen
