9780313295768: Encyclopedia of Relationships Across the Lifespan

This comprehensive, cross-disciplinary encyclopedia explores the developmental nature of social interactions and is designed for a broad range of readers in college, institutional, and public library settings. The lifespan perspective illuminates how relationships change throughout the course of human development from family interactions and friendships to dating and work relationships. In the process a diversity of topics are explored, such as aging experiences, divorce, family violence, gender roles, grandparenthood, HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, marriage and alternative lifestyles, parenthood, and sibling relations. A variety of perspectives are provided, including psychological, sociological, family studies, historical, anthropological, and religious views. The reader is also exposed to how lifespan relationships are shaped by international, racial, ethnic, and class differences.

Over 500 easy-to-read entries analyze terms, concepts, themes, theories, and policies, as well as current, historical, and multicultural perspectives, and provide over 1,500 sources for further study. An appendix listing over 100 professional journals of note and a selected bibliography of the latest publications of importance to the topic overall further enrich this volume designed for students, teachers, practitioners, and general readers in all the social sciences.

Review:

"A book such as this would have been unthinkable in any other century. However, greatly enhanced life expectancy and the explosive growth of developmental psychology during the twentieth century make it a necessity...The encyclopedia forms a bridge between popular (mis)understanding and scholarly work. Its 500-plus entries explain contemporary understanding of the meaning of various relationships an individual experiences throughout life. They cover stages of life, family relationships, non-familial intimate and social relationships, biological and psychological factors that affect relationships, developmental theories, biological processes, related issues, and individuals who have studied these matters...The encyclopedia emphasizes the life patterns prevalent in the contemporary United States, but many articles include cross-cultural comparisons and other articles summarize culture-specific lifespan issues in individual countries or historical periods."-Rettig on Reference

"Turner's encyclopedia is a source for viewing all aspects of relationships across the life span, between generations and genders, and in many cultures around the world. Arranged in dictionary form and written for both students and scholars, it successfully defines the theories and themes encountered in the study of relationships... Recommended for all levels."-Choice

"Turner compiles a comprehensive, nonjudgmental, and readily accessible cross-disciplinary reference to more than 500 terms and concepts (from "Abusive Family Relationships" to "World Views of Lifespan Development") related to the myriad human interaction types from birth to death. This title should be useful in libraries to answer reference questions and to support study in education, human growth and development, nursing, psychology, counseling, social work and sociology. There does not seem to be a comparable reference tool of this magnitude and completeness."-Library Journal
