As Ellen Bercheid points out in her foreword to this volume, relationship science is a complex and ever expanding field. Much credit goes to editors Clyde Hendrick and Susan S. Hendrick for their scholarly dedication to the advancement of this multidisciplinary arena. This sourcebook demonstrates, yet again, their expertise and leadership as they succeed in combining many great contributions to the field by some of the most respected specialists around. Read this book for a panoramic view of close relationship research with highlights from current literature, original research, practical applications, and projections for future research.
