Relational maintenance provides a rallying point for those seeking to discover the behaviors that individuals utilize to sustain their personal relationships. Theoretical models, research programs, and specific studies have examined how people in a variety of close relationships choose to define and maintain those relationships. In addition, relational maintenance turns our attention to communicative processes that help people sustain their close relationships. In this collection, editors Daniel J. Canary and Marianne Dainton focus on the communicative processes critical to the maintenance and enhancement of personal relationships. The volume considers variations in maintaining different types of personal relationships; structural constraints on relationship maintenance; and cultural variations in relational maintenance. Contributions to the volume cover a broad range of relational types, including romantic relationships, family relationships, long-distance relationships, workplace relationships, and Gay and Lesbian relationships, among others. Maintaining Relationships Through Communication: Relational, Contextual, and Cultural Variations synthesizes current research in relationship maintenance, emphasizes the ways that behaviors vary in their maintenance functions across relational contexts, discusses alternative explanations for maintaining relationships, and presents avenues for future research. As such, it is intended for students and scholars studying interpersonal communication and personal relationships.

Following in the same tradition as two other edited collections that revolutionized interpersonal communication research (G.R. Miller′s Explorations in Interpersonal Communication and M.E. Roloff & G.R. Miller′s Interpersonal Processes) New Directions in Interpersonal Communication presents the latest research being done today and reflects the changes that have occurred in interpersonal communication research during the past 18 years. A combination of established and newer scholars, as well as ′boundary spanners′ (those who are applying interpersonal theories and concepts to areas such as family, health, intercultural, organizational, and mediated communication) illustrate the wealth and breadth of this area of study and research.

The many narrative cases in this book offer dramatic, real-life snapshots of interpersonal theory in action. Written by established communication scholars and reflecting carefully conducted research, each case helps you apply abstract principles to specific situations, people, and relationships. As you read these cases, you'll also learn to appreciate how multiple communication dynamics work together to shape what happens in human interactions - for example, how a case focusing on self-disclosure also gives you insights into such issues as timing, context, and style of communication. And as you identify patterns revealed in the cases, you'll develop the ability to detect these patterns in your own interactions and ultimately make more informed choices about which patterns to foster and avoid in your interpersonal relationships.
