Kevin Pintauro January 29, 2008 THL Malina NTW Chapter 5 This chapter talks about social contracts and how people and families are brought together. There is kinship which is a social contract that you are born with such as to your parents and your siblings. Then there is a marriage that obligates two individuals to each other and their families to each other. Depending on the family or kinship, there are qualifications and disqualifications that need to be met first. The family rules and often a product of their environment such as exogamy and endogamy. Exogamy requiring the marriage comes from two people from different families and endogamy requiring the marriage comes from two people from the same family. The chapter examines the geographical and chronological differences of societies, particularly modern America and 1 st century Mediterranean. The “rules” are different because of the environment. Technology allows (forces) kinship to spread or relocate separating themselves from their generation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
