  1. The avunculate: a cross-cultural critique of Claude Levi-StraussRyder, James W. - Behavior Science Notes, 1970 - 1 Hypotheses

    The authors test Levi-Strauss' theory of the avunculate, a special relationship between a mother's brother and his sister's son. They critique the theory on the grounds that many societies have a special relationship that could be called the avunculate but lack the other relationships predicted by Levi-Strauss.
