Editorial Reviews

Review

"An invitation to further and deeper conversations among scholars interested in all types of identity-based inequalities about the political institution of marriage and the politics of inclusion."—Politics and Gender



"Because Yamin, a political scientist, so astutely illustrates the hefty political work that marriage does in the face of the widespread belief that it is entirely nonpolitical, she deepens our grasp of its history."—Journal of American History



"A powerful analysis of the complex interactions between the public obligations expected of citizens and the private ones expected of marriage partners. Yamin demonstrates how our most intimate relationships have been shaped by political agendas, and in turn how our changing notion of personal rights and obligations are reshaping political debates."—Stephanie Coontz, author of Marriage, A History



"A splendid contribution to the scholarship of politics and marriage. . . . An exemplary work in a neglected field."—Anne Norton, University of Pennsylvania
