    Reviews & endorsements

    'Increasing recognition that the nature of our relationships with others powerfully affects every aspect of our lives has resulted in the rapid growth of relationship science, a multidisciplinary endeavor that engages virtually all of the behavioral and biological sciences. The editors and contributors to this remarkable volume are to be congratulated for providing an up-to-date and well-organized panoramic view of this sprawling and vibrant effort to understand the critical role relationships play in every person's life.' Ellen Berscheid, Regents' Professor of Psychology Emerita, University of Minnesota

    'In this comprehensive volume, Anita L. Vangelisti and Daniel Perlman have assembled an eminent group of relationship scholars from diverse disciplines. The contributors present cutting-edge theory and research into the nature of personal relationships, their impact on health and well-being, and the role of social and technological change. This Handbook clearly attests to the breadth, depth, and vitality of relationship science.' Judith Feeney, Honorary Associate Professor, University of Queensland

    'Vangelisti and Perlman once again masterfully assemble most of the giants of their fields as well as many of the new and rising stars. As such, this is the perfect collection for both a scholar's shelf and a graduate seminar. The selection of topics is excellent in breadth and depth, and will no doubt set the stage for the field of personal relationships for the next decade to come.' Brian H. Spitzberg, Senate Distinguished Professor, San Diego State University
