Social Context and Relationships

Social Context and Relationships

Edited by:

September 1993 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This volume explores the impact of social, cultural, structural, network and dynamic transactional processes on the conduct of relationships. In so doing, it makes a compelling case for research to be directed away from over-application of individual perspectives and towards inclusion of contextual factors.

Confronting the practical realities against which individuals may struggle to manage relationships, contributors focus on such issues as: limits on opportunity and freedom; coercive family norms; responsibilities; poverty; and prejudice.
