Description - Revolutions of the Heart by Wendy Langford

What is love all about? How do men and women's relationships work and what roles do the people involved in them end up playing? Is it the same for everyone? In this lively and stimulating analysis of heterosexual love, Wendy Langford looks at many of the issues involved in today's relationships. Romantic love, the 'language of the heart', the trouble with love and 'the problem of desire' are just some of the subjects discussed in this highly original book. In it, the author argues that the process of falling in love is essentially only a brief holiday from the gender roles which then reassert themselves in the old forms of domination and oppression. Whether the reader agrees with this or not, there can be few women involved in a relationship that will not recognise themselves somewhere in this book.
