Twins in the World: Their Lives and the Legends They Inspire, from Manila to Madagascar by Alessandra Piontelli
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.9 mb
Overview: In this compelling narrative, Alessandra Piontelli explores the different roles that twins play in societies around the world. In her travels throughout Africa, Asia, South America, and the Pacific rim, Piontelli has observed how some cultures deify twins while other cultures attribute evil spirits to them and others outright destroy all multiple siblings. Twins in the World mixes anthropology, ethnography, and religious studies to show the most critical aspect of comparative world culture–how a society cares for its young–through the lens of twins, who seem to hold a special place in all cultures.
