They Call It Love: The Politics of Emotional Life – Alva Gotby

£9.99

Paperback

They Call It Love investigates the work that makes a haven in a heartless world, examining who performs this labour, how it is organised, and how it might change. Drawing on the thought of the feminist movement Wages for Housework, Gotby demonstrates that emotion is a key element in the reproduction of society and its norms. Addressing the problem of love’s labour requires nothing less than a radical restructuring of society.
