Ink note on half title page, slight wave. 1990 Trade Paperback. 174 pp. This brief introduction to work on personal relationships emphasizes and delineates the important roles of relationships in our everyday personal lives....This area of research on personal relationships has had an almost apocalyptic growth in the last ten years, and this book introduces students to the most recent work. Using his experience as Editor of the Journal of Social And Personal Relationships and the Wiley Handbook of Personal Relationships, Steve Duck has been able to overview the field by tracing the developments of recent research beyond the traditional experimental laboratory work on attraction to strangers and by including the most up-to-date work by a range of authors. He emphasizes and delineates the important roles of relationships in our everyday personal lives and brings together some of the most exciting work by key scholars in the discipline.
