About the Authors
  • Personal relationships have long been of central interest to social scientists, but the subject of friendship has been relatively neglected. Moreover, most studies of friendship have been social psychological. Placing Friendship in Context is a unique collection bridging social psychological and social structural research to advance understanding of this important subject. In it, some of the world's leading researchers explore the social and historical contexts in which friendships and other similar informal ties develop and how it is that these contexts shape the form and substance the relationships assume.

    • Unique in examining friendship as a social/cultural phenomenon and not just a personal relationship
    • Compares patterns of friendship across history, culture, gender and age differences
    • Contributors are leading international researchers
