To celebrate Valentine’s Day, today we’re giving away a copy of The Curious History of Love, which details the history of love in all its forms.
The one emotion that matters most to many people is the one about which social thinkers rarely speak – love. For many people, love is the thing that matters most in their lives: they are searching for love, hoping to find in love a kind of happiness that they cannot find in their work or by surrounding themselves with material goods. But where does this peculiar and powerful blending together of love and happiness come from, and why do we find it such a compelling idea today? Written by one of France’s leading sociologists, this highly readable book sheds new light on love and happiness and will resonate with many readers.
To win this stunning book, all you have to do is list the greatest love story you have ever read below in the comments! The winner will be chosen at random on Thursday and announced in our lunchtime Facebook post.
