Summary

"Margaret Mead was a prolific letter-writer, often far from home and loved ones and always honing her writing and her ideas. To Cherish the Life of the World presents, for the first time, her personal and professional correspondence, spanning almost sixty years. These letters lend insight into Mead's relationships with interconnected circles of family, friends, and colleagues, and reveal her thoughts on the nature of these relationships." "With a foreword by her daughter, Mary Catherine Bateson, a renowned author and anthropologist in her own right, this volume of letters from Mead to those who shared her life and work offers new insight into a rich and deeply complex mind."--BOOK JACKET.
