Personal Relationships across Cultures


This multidisciplinary study is one of the first books to offer a comparison of relationship practices and beliefs in different societies, and to explore how broader values and economic realities may help explain the similarities or differences in personal relationships across cultures. Robin Goodwin discusses different types of relationships - friendship, romance, family, and the workplace - in a variety of cultural and ethnic contexts, and examines the way in which individual personalities, social norms, and larger economic, political, and demographic transitions have interacted to transform personal relationships around the world.
