About the Authors
  • Understanding interpersonal relationships requires understanding actors, behaviors, and contexts. This 2002 volume presents research from a variety of disciplines that examine personal relationships on all three levels. The first section focuses on the factors that influence individuals to enter, maintain, and dissolve relationships. The second section emphasizes ongoing processes that characterize relationships and focuses on issues such as arguing and sacrificing. The third and final section demonstrates that the process of stability and change are embedded in social, cultural, and historical contexts. Chapters address cultural universals as well as cross-cultural differences in relationship behaviors and outcomes. The emergence of relational forms, such as the interaction between people and computers, is also explored. Stability and Change in Relationships will be of interest to a broad range of fields, including psychology, sociology, communications, gerontology, and counselling.

    •  Presents research and theory focusing on the dynamic associations between actors, behaviors, and contexts
    •  Includes internationally known scholars from a variety of disciplines, including social and clinical psychology, history, and sociology
    •  Serves as an invaluable resource for researchers, practitioners, and students who are interested in personal relationships
