*How do relationships get started successfully?

*How do relationships develop?

*What makes relationships decline and how can they be repaired?

As social psychologists become more aware of the ways in which relationships underpin almost everything in the social sciences, the need for an introductory book for students and scholars has further increased. This long-awaited second edition of a highly successful text summarizes the research on relationships, focusing not only on their growth and development but also on their negative aspects, breakdown and repair.

The author addresses the essential use of relationship issues within applied areas such as policing, health care, and the corporate world. He also emphasizes the importance of multidisciplinary studies and the integration of different frameworks and methods, by focusing less on static factors in relationships and more on the matter of process. Finally, he examines the need to contextualize relationship processes and take account of the daily issues of management by relational partners.

The second edition of Relating to Others is strongly grounded in a discussion of the contexts for relating, whether cultural, linguistic, or interpersonal. It focuses on a range of relationships, friendship, and types of marriage and is written in an engaging style for students of psychology and the wider social sciences by one of the top authorities in the scientific research on relationships.
