Anthropology is by definition about ""others"", but in this work the phrase refers not to members of observed cultures, but to ""significant others"" - spouses, lovers, and others with whom anthropologists have deep relationships. This work looks at the roles of these spouses and partners of anthropologists, especially their work as they accompanied the anthropologists in the field. Other relationships discussed include those between anthropologists and informants, mentors and students, cohorts and partners, and parents and children. This text closes with a look at gender roles in the field of anthropology.
