From the Introduction to the Percheron Press Edition . . .

“[W]e speak for all of the authors of Close Relationships when we express our great pleasure in seeing our book back in print again, for we believe its republication reflects the growing importance of the relationship field. We also believe its key messages are as sound and relevant today as they were at the time of the book’s initial publication nearly two decades ago.”

From the reviews . . .

“The book reflects the expertise of its authors in social, clinical, and developmental psychology . . . . [S]cholarly and readable . . . . There is no question that it will become a major source for investigators and students interested in close relationships.”
Sharon S. Brehm in Science

“[A] book of singular importance. . . . Kelley and his colleagues . . . have been extraordinarily successful. . . . And as a result of their landmark effort, a science of close relationships seems for the first time to be a real possibility.”
Zick Rubin in Contemporary Psychology
