This volume brings together leading investigators who integrate two distinct research domains in social psychology--people's internal worlds and their close relationships. Contributors present compelling findings on the bidirectional interplay between internal processes, such as self-esteem and self-regulation, and relationship processes, such as how positively partners view each other, whether they are dependent on each other, and the level of excitement in the relationship. Methodological challenges inherent in studying these complex issues are described in depth, as are implications for understanding broader aspects of psychological functioning and well-being.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This volume reflects state-of-the art research on the dynamic interplay between the self and relationships. Lucidly written chapters provide textured and pointed discussions on how self-processes influence interpersonal relationships and vice versa. An admirable feature of the book is that it is tightly edited: chapters are interconnected and foster continuity, with one chapter addressing issues that were raised in another. The volume is well planned, comprehensive, and generative. Importantly, it is perfectly suited for scholars in the field; as a textbook for graduate or undergraduate seminars (on self, relationships, or interpersonal processes); and even as a supplementary social psychology text for undergraduates ready for challenging work.' - Constantine Sedikides, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southampton, UK

'There has been a surge of interest in the interplay between the self and relationships in our empirical journals, but no comprehensive overview has been available. This timely volume satisfies that important need. It presents an impressive set of chapters examining both the influence of the self on relationship functioning and, even more uniquely, the role of relationships in shaping the self. Further, the broad conceptual definition of the self that the authors adopt gives the volume sufficient scope to be used both as an advanced undergraduate text and as a general reference book.' - John G. Holmes, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Waterloo, Canada
