Ordinary Relationships: A Sociological Study of Emotions, Reflexivity and Culture

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract / Description of output

Recent theorizing tends to position ordinary relationships as something we have lost, yet the nature of these relationships is not seriously engaged with. Drawing on rich empirical data, this book questions epochal claims about contemporary emotional lives, setting out to be explicit about the nature of ordinary relationships.
