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, focus-
ing 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 frame-
works and methods, by focusing less on static factors in relationships and more
on the matter of process. Finally, he examines the need to contextualize relation-
ship 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.
