This book traces changes in emotional regimes from medieval society to late modernity, in particular exploring the role of intimacy as a driver of emotions. It conducts a systematic study of key conceptual frameworks developed by theorists in understanding the relationship between emotional styles and historical change, shows how intimacy has largely existed outside conventional bourgeois structures of marriage and the family, and considers the Foucauldian concept of "genealogy" as a method of assessing transformations over time.
