“Beyond Monogamy is a book that should be read cover to cover if at all possible.”
—American Journal of Sociology
“This book is a must read for anyone interested in sexuality and intersectionality. Schippers examines the racialized and gendered backdrop against which heterosexuality and monogamy play out in contemporary US culture. Going beyond the individual focus common in much discussion of polyamory, Beyond Monogamy examines the potential collective impacts of non-monogamies and exposes how hetero-masculinity and mono-normativity are socially constructed and far from inevitable.”
—Elisabeth Sheff, author of The Polyamorists Next Door: Inside Multiple-Partner Relationships and Families
“In this book, Mimi Schippers takes feminist scholars of sexuality to task for failing to theorize compulsory monogamy as a regime of normalcy that enforces gendered, raced, and classed inequalities. Exploring polyqueer sexual practices in film, writing, and her own life, Schippers provides a vivid illustration of the importance of expanding our understandings of sexual and romantic relationships.”
—C. J. Pascoe, author of Dude, You’re a Fag: Masculinity and Sexuality in High School
