Abstract: This edition of “Configurations of Culture in North America” is the openest, freest, and shortest summary of Ruth Benedict’s 1934 classic _Patterns of Culture_ available. In it, Benedict rehearses the same arguments — often with the same data — that we see in _Patterns_. I hope that it will introduce these arguments to readers who do not have the time (or money) to read _Patterns_, which is still under copyright (at least in the United States).
