    schema:reviewBody ""It is commonly assumed that capitalism has created an a-emotional world dominated by bureaucratic rationality; that economic behavior conflicts with intimate, authentic relationships; that the public and private spheres are irremediably opposed to each other; and that true love is opposed to calculation and self-interest." "Eva Illouz rejects these conventional ideas and argues that the culture of capitalism has fostered an intensely emotional culture - in the workplace, in the family, and in our own relationship to ourselves. She argues that economic relations have become increasingly defined by economic and political models of bargaining, exchange, and equity. This dual process by which emotional and economic relationships come to define and shape each other is called "emotional capitalism." Illouz finds evidence of this process of emotional capitalism in various social sites: self-help literature, women's magazines, talk shows, support groups, and the Internet dating sites"--Jacket." ;
