About this book

Drawing on interviews with UK couples in distance relationships, this book seeks to explain, evaluate and advance sociological debates about intimate life. It provides a rich and human perspective on how bodies, emotions and connections to others are key in maintaining intimate relationships.

Reviews

"In this engagingly written book, Holmes addresses current debates on detraditionalisation in a refreshing way. Grounded in empirical research, the complexities of how distance relationships are conducted and experienced are explored in light of the opportunities and tensions afforded by social change and continuity. Using a wide range of literatures on embodiment, relationality and the emotions, Distance Relationships will appeal to both students and academics who are interested in contemporary relationships and intimacy." - Vanessa May, Senior Lecturer in Sociology, University of Manchester, UK
