Modern changes in the ways we interact with one another have led scientists and laypeople alike to take renewed interest in the workings of interpersonal relationships. This volume, first published in German and later revised for an American audience, takes a contemporary, interdisciplinary approach to the dynamics of interpersonal relationships. In five clearly defined sections, including those covering familial, romantic, and professional relationships, distinguished contributors address numerous examples of human interaction. This is an ideal text for graduate students in courses on human interaction and social psychology.
