With the field of personal relationships having grown dramatically in the past quarter century, The Cambridge Handbook of Personal Relationships, Second Edition serves as a benchmark of the current state of scholarship, synthesizing the extant theoretical and empirical literature, tracing its historical roots, and making recommendations for future directions. Written by internationally known experts from key disciplines, the Handbook addresses both fundamental questions and cutting-edge concerns. This second edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect recent developments in analytical techniques, shifts in theoretical emphases, and an increased attention to social processes. New chapters include the Neuroscience of Salutary Close Relationships; Self-Disclosure in Relationships; Acceptance, Rejection, and the Quest for Relational Value; Relationships and Physical Health; Personal Relationships and Technology in the Digital Age; and Promoting Healthy Relationships. This compendium of state-of-the-art research and theory on personal relationships will be of great value to researchers, graduate students, and practitioners.

Presents a comprehensive and multidisciplinary perspective on personal relationships
Features contributions from outstanding, distinguished scholars who are internationally known for their work
Includes balanced yet insightful perspectives on crucial issues

Advance praise: ‘Increasing recognition that the nature of our relationships with others powerfully affects every aspect of our lives has resulted in the rapid growth of relationship science, a multidisciplinary endeavor that engages virtually all of the behavioral and biological sciences. The editors and contributors to this remarkable volume are to be congratulated for providing an up-to-date and well-organized panoramic view of this sprawling and vibrant effort to understand the critical role relationships play in every person's life.' Ellen Berscheid, Regents' Professor of Psychology Emerita, University of Minnesota

Advance praise: ‘In this comprehensive volume, Anita L. Vangelisti and Daniel Perlman have assembled an eminent group of relationship scholars from diverse disciplines. The contributors present cutting-edge theory and research into the nature of personal relationships, their impact on health and well-being, and the role of social and technological change. This Handbook clearly attests to the breadth, depth, and vitality of relationship science.' Judith Feeney, Honorary Associate Professor, University of Queensland

Advance praise; ‘Vangelisti and Perlman once again masterfully assemble most of the giants of their fields as well as many of the new and rising stars. As such, this is the perfect collection for both a scholar's shelf and a graduate seminar. The selection of topics is excellent in breadth and depth, and will no doubt set the stage for the field of personal relationships for the next decade to come.' Brian H. Spitzberg, Senate Distinguished Professor, San Diego State University
