Burton Benedict and Marion Benedict
Men, Women, and Money in Seychelles: Two Views
Berkeley, University of California Press, 1982.
"This book, an ethnography of the Seychelles, is presented in two parts: the first by Marion Benedict in the form of a first-person narrative of her experiences with one Seychelloise woman, and the second, a sociological description by Burton Benedict. A man fulfills his obligations to women through gifts of money... In return, women who have much less access to wage employment fulfill their obligations to men who have given money through their sexuality and domestic labour."
