Davor Rostuhar – Love Around the World (EN)

Love Around the World
author: Davor Rostuhar


After Anđela and Davor married, they set out on a remarkable honeymoon—traveling for a year around the world while exploring love in a vast array of cultures. Their journey took them across six continents and 30 countries, from Bushmen in the African savanna to urban couples in the world’s biggest metropolises, from traditional polygamous harems to modern polyamorous communities, from hunter-gatherers deep in the Amazon rainforest to indigenous tribes on the idyllic shores of the Pacific, from those who have never found love to those who have, in love, found everything. They spoke with renowned scholars and, faced with daunting challenges, also analyzed their own relationship, all to discover the true nature of love and whether it is universal. What they came up with, in the words of editor Kruno Lokotar, is “a book that heals with love and aspires to heal love.”

This is a truly magnificent book—packed with touching and fascinating stories of love around the world. The people, the settings, their words: it’s elegant, authentic, charming and hopeful. And what an astonished achievement by the authors–to capture romance in so many corners of the globe.

– Dr. Helen Fisher
