Product Details

Praise

“Elizabeth Abbott has penned a masterpiece…a wide-ranging account of how the social intersects with many forms of the personal.” —Ahmad Saidullah, author of Happiness and Other Disorders

“Deftly shows how this always fragile, yet always resilient institution has evolved. It’s not always a pretty picture but it’s a fascinating one.” —Judith Timson, author of Family Matters

“No thoughtful person—married, celibate, unfaithful or otherwise—should be without this book.” —Mark Kingwell, author of The World We Want

“This book is like taking a centuries-long, world-wide trip down a petal-strewn aisle, and I loved it. If you enjoy a good wedding, are first in line to dance The Hora, or you’ve divorced yourself from boring reads, then find A History of Marriage.” Long Island Pulse

“[A History of Marriage] weaves stories and facts in a kind of loosely fluid narrative that makes pleasant reading. The author has a flair for sweetening the facts with her palatable style.” Kirkus Reviews

“Sure to provoke and surprise.” The Globe and Mail
