Book Title: An Atlas of Interpersonal Situations

Author: Kelley, Holmes, Kerr, Reis, Rusbult, and Van Lange

Book Description:

In graduate school at North Carolina I was introduced to Interdependence Theory, the subject of this book. Like all good theories, it uses a handful of simple concepts to explain a wide range of phenemena, including conflict and cooperation in interpersonal and intergroup relationships. This book is special to me not only because the theory has proven useful in my professional work, but also because it is emblematic of the cooperative research tradition in which I was trained. I am indebted to Chester A. Insko and the University of North Carolina program for their lasting influence.
