Drawing on social, economic and political history, Modern Love explains for the first time at book length how relations changed between men and women in Britain in the twentieth century. Marcus Collins shows how men and women's expectations from life radically shifted and converged, describing how we moved from inhabiting our separate spheres with wholly different prospects and values towards the ideal, if not quite the actuality, of equality, mutuality, companionship and friendship.
This book also shows how progressive ideas about the relationship between men and women that originated in Britain reverberated throughout the world.
Accessible, brilliantly written and deeply informative this important book will appeal to men and women of all ages.
