by Graham A. Allan
     
 

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Allan (sociology, U. of Southampton) argues that social context, as much as choice, shapes the form and specifics of friendship ties. He develops a sociological perspective on friendship as a patterned social relationship, focusing on the way in which both opportunities for and the organization of friendship are influenced by social and economic factors lying outside the relationship itself. Very readable, very welcome. Paper edition (unseen), $16.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
