    schema:description "Everyday Friendships conceptualizes the lived experience of intimacy in a world in which the meaning of love and friendship is increasingly unclear. Drawing on such thinkers as Simmel and Kracauer, Elias, Goffman, Luhmann, and Honneth, the book charts modern intimacy and the freedom it offers. This freedom is made visible not only in friendship's resistance to commodification and to integration into the therapeutic temper of our times, but also in its potential to generate changed perception of self and new life trajectories. There are, however, persisting challenges. Gendered assumptions continue to orient personal relationships, and limit the freedom of intimacy in everyday relationships of care and affection, and so demand reflection. For, if friendship - arguably the freest of all personal relationships - is limited by gendered power, gender divisions do their work not only in the unequal distribution of public opportunities but also in private relationships of trust that aim to realize care, affection, and respect. Everyday Friendships thus demonstrates that the 'small world' of dyads - relationships between two - can offer insights into deeply entrenched dynamics of power in the world at large. -- from back cover."@en ;
