Exploring cultural transformations of intimacy in contemporary Mexico, Intimacies and Cultural Change examines the ways in which globalization and rapid cultural change have transformed the cultural meanings of couple relationships, sexuality, and personal life in Mexican society. Through a range of contemporary case studies, the book sheds light on the ways in which people draw on these cultural meanings in everyday life to account for their experiences and practices of intimacy in different social settings. An interdisciplinary volume, presenting the latest research on the region from experts working in diverse fields within the social sciences, this book will appeal to scholars of sociology, anthropology, geography and social psychology with interests in gender and sexuality, social change and contemporary intimate relationships.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Intimacies and Cultural Change celebrates and gives voice to the kind of interdisciplinary collaboration that is possible, as scholars from a wide array of intellectual paths converge to advance our understanding of the ways in which intimacy, sexuality, love and relationships, and family life are being organized and reinvented in an increasingly globalized 21st century Mexican society.' Gloria GonzA!lez-LA(3)pez, The University of Texas, Austin, USA 'This book provides a long overdue examination of global influences on cultural change - in particular, within Mexican families. As the contexts of both families and Mexico have changed, so have the cultural meanings of sexuality, relationships, parenting, marriage, etc. In particular, this book lays the groundwork for an indigenous and emerging Family Science in Mexico.' Stephan M. Wilson, Oklahoma State University, USA
