A feminist critique of self-help books on heterosexual romance: Read ‘em and weep
Women's Studies in Communication

These patterns, primarily grounded in a “cross-cultural differences” explanation of gender, mask patriarchal power and dominance in intimate relationships. © 1995 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
