"An excellent gateway to further examination of any of the subdisciplines of relationship science, or as a research tool in its own right."
Relationships are fundamental to nearly all domains of human activity, from birth to death. When people participate in healthy, satisfying relationships, they live, work, and learn more effectively. When relationships are distressed or dysfunctional, people are less happy, less healthy, and less productive. Few aspects of human experience have as broad or as deep effects on our lives.
The Encyclopedia of Human Relationships offers an interdisciplinary view of all types of human associations―friends, lovers, spouses, roommates, coworkers, teammates, parents and children, cousins, siblings, acquaintances, neighbors, business associates, and so forth. Although each of these connections is unique in some respect, they share a common core of principles and processes. These three volumes provide a state-of-the-art review of the extensive theories, concepts, and empirical findings about human relationships.
Our relationships influence virtually all aspects of our everyday existence and are of deep interest to students, researchers, academics, and laypeople alike. This Encyclopedia is an invaluable addition to any academic or public library.

Harry T. Reis is Professor of Psychology at the University of Rochester.

He is also investigating some of the psychological processes that affect the course and conduct of close relationships. He is particularly interested in intimacy, attachment and emotion regulation. He is well-versed in the field, having served as editor of its leading journal, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, having recently edited The SAGE Encyclopedia of Human Relationships, and having served as president of both the world′s largest organization of social psychologists (Society for Personality and Social Psychology) and the world′s pre-eminent organization devoted to researching relationships (International Association of Relationship Research).
I am a social psychologist at Illinois State University. My primary appointment is in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, but I also have a joint appointment in the Department of Psychology. My major research interests focus on issues related to PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS (romantic pairs, friendships, social networks). I have also conducted research on young adult (premarital) sexuality. Courses that I teach at ISU include: Social Psychology (Soc 223), Senior Experience (Soc 300), Personal Relationships (Soc 265), and a graduate seminar on Personal Relationships/Family (Soc 469). I received my Ph.D. in Sociology in 1985 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
