Abstract in another language

On what basis are sibling relations made and negotiated and how do they change over time? How do siblings provide support, but also create pressure or conflict? Despite their importance as models for or contrasts to marriage, friendship, and nation, sibling relations hav been largely ignored in anthropology. In this volume, the contributors provide a conceptualization of siblingship as shared how they contribute to wider community processes, material support, and emotional connections. The ethnographic case studies provide detailed descriptions of lived sibling relations in various settings across the globe.
