This is essential reading for armchair anthropologists

Kinship is a technical field in anthropology because small societies are organzied almost wholly on the basis of kin relations. Typically one is related to everyone else so all other persons are either relatives by blood or by marriage.
The principle is well recognized among Australian Aborigines who have what are known as sections. An A man marries a B woman. They have C children who must marry a D. A D man will have A children. An analysis shows that the system is built upon a dual division of descent(moieties) and has much in common with other kinship systems around the world where kin groups (clans) are based on descent.
Fox helps us understand section systems better than anyone else I know (he even analyzes an eight section system some Aborigines have and few anthroplogists understand).
For a simpler introduction to the field of kinship see A Manual for the Analysis of Kinship.
