From the Back Cover:

Are personal relationships deeper and more intimate than everbefore or are they increasingly empty and structured by selfishindividualism? This book pursues the question in a wide-rangingdiscussion of the changing nature of intimacy in modern societies.


The book starts by asking whether intimacy is a basic human need.The author then discusses whether a particular type of intimacy isnow being sought in all close relationships in western societies,and whether this involves a sharing or our innermost selves or ifrelationships are still fundamentally shaped by power and economicconsiderations. Through a series of individual chapters focusing onrelationships between parents and children, families, sexualpartners, couples and friends, Jamieson shows that many currentbeliefs about the nature of relationships need to be re-thought,and she argues for a more grounded, gendered and complex picture ofintimacy. As well as a critical evaluation of theories of change inpersonal life, an impressive range of scholarship from Europe,America, Australia and New Zealand is brought to bear on theissues.


Intimacy will be of interest to scholars and students ofsociology, women's studies, and gender studies.
