Editorial Reviews

B. Bradford Brown
“Close relationships with kin and non-kin are a crucial factor of development in adolescence and young adulthood. Yet, there have been few efforts to integrate research about these relationships across these two developmental periods. This volume contains chapters by well-known scholars in the field, addressing both the dynamics of close relationships and the impact on individual adjustment and behavior. Insights from these authors will help to guide future longitudinal studies of close relationships.”
Anna Beth Doyle
“It is a book that I would recommend to our library and to my graduate students, as well as buying for my own shelf. It is centrally relevant to my own research and those of my graduate students. The editors command the utmost respect among their peers in the scholarly community, and this book will be of the highest caliber in promoting advances in scholarly and applied thinking.”
