A Short History of Love
Modern love developed alongside capitalism to sell us the idea that love is all we need, even though we also need to buy a lot of things to have love. This chapter explores how romance developed as one of the most important ideologies of the modern era and how it relies on many other modern developments—like the drawing of the color line, the birth of the homosexual, and the creation of new class hierarchies—to make sense.
