Understanding Non-Monogamies

Most social scientific work on intimate relationships has assumed a monoga- mous structure, or has considered anything other than monogamy only in the context of ‘infidelity’. Yet, in recent years there has been a growing interest among researchers and the public in exploring various patterns of intimacy that involve open non-monogamy. This volume gathers contributions from academics, activists, and practitioners throughout the world to explore non- monogamous relationships. Featuring both empirical and theoretical pieces, contributors examine the history and cultural basis of various forms of non- monogamy, experiences of non-monogamous living, psychological under- standings of relationship patterns, language and emotion, the discursive con- struction of mono-normativity as well as issues of race, class, disability, sexu- ality and gender. This volume will be of interest to academics and practitio- ners working in the social sciences and anyone who is seeking greater insight into the intricacies of non-monogamous relationships.
