Editorial Reviews

"The work of the late Uriel Foa in this book and of his admireres and friends who contributed chapters to it provides a resounding confirmation of the relevance of his resource theory to social psychology. It is a model that provides a structure and a means of ordering the items or actions taht are exchanged in social relationships. Foa's resource theory is currently proving to be extremely useful in understanding the intracacies of social exchange."--CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY
