When W. H. Freeman originally published this book in 1983, the scientific study of relationships was in its childhood. "Relationship science" has since become an established endeavor in psychology, sociology, and other social and behavioral science disciplines - complete with its own organizations, journals, book series, handbooks, and sourcebooks. A lengthy new introduction by Ellen Berscheid and Harold Kelley documents the evolution of the field.
