Bourgeois law dictates the rules for relationships and inheritances.

This has been a favorite of mine since I was in college a long time ago. Engels knows some things Marx never talked about. I love it.

Friedrich Engels (1820-1895) was a German political theorist and developer of Marxist theory, who financially supported Marx for many years. After Marx's death Engels edited the second and third volumes of "Das Kapital."

This book (originally published in 1884) deals with many topics about which Marx never wrote. It was strongly influenced by Lewis Henry Morgan's famous book, Ancient society (1877).

Modern feminists may not agree with his assertion that matriarchy, "in the sense of power held by women over men comparable to that later held by men over women," had never existed (pg. 35). However, he enthusiastically agrees with Morgan that matrilineal clans, rather than the "family," was the precursor of later patriarchal clans, and that a "conspiracy of silence" is the cause of this not being more widely known. (Pg. 83-84)

He states that "The overthrow of mother right was the world historical defeat of the female sex." Woman became degraded and "reduced to servitude." (Pg. 120-121) By contrast, the modern industrial family is founded on the "open or concealed domestic slavery of the wife, and modern society is a mass composed of these individual families as its molecules." (Pg. 137)

This book in particular was very influential on the "Second Stage" women's movement in the late 1960s and 1970s.

Anthro major? You might be surprised how much and how many tools come from Engels, as in Marx and Engels of Capital fame. The same analytical tools they applied to economics (That are used every day) here are applied to anthropological study of the basis of our present day social institutions.
Relevant today, as much as for info as for seeing where the ideas discussed lead to the arguments and theories of today.
