Personal Relationships

(First Edition)
Edited by Dr. Bahira Sherif Trask

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-60927-921-9, 520 pages


The scientific study of personal relationships has largely centered on understanding heterosexual romantic relationships. Personal Relationships draws together a collection of articles that focus on some of the other significant personal relationships that influence people's lives, including family, school, community, and work relationships. This anthology emphasizes the importance of understanding the dialectic between healthy relationship building and leading a fulfilling and successful life.

Personal Relationships is an insightful and engaging work that is organized into six parts:

  • Relationship Foundations
  • Relationship Development and Processes
  • Friendship Relations
  • Developing Romantic Relationships
  • Relationship Challenges
  • Relationships in a Globalized World


Dr. Bahira Sherif Trask has a BA in Political Science from Yale University and a PhD in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania. Her research centers on gender, work-family issues, globalization, and intergenerational relationships.
