Non/Monogamy in the Public Sphere
Drawing on media, popular culture, and recent court cases, this book examines how various forms of non-monogamy (polygamy, adultery, and polyamory) are represented in the public sphere, how some forms of non-monogamy are tolerated and others vilified, and the effects such privileging is having on intimate relationships and other aspects of contemporary Western society.
