Summary
Challenging the commonly held assumption that men and women hail from different psychological and social "planets," this illuminating work reexamines what the empirical research really shows about how the sexes communicate in close relationships. The volume highlights evidence of similarities - as well as differences - between the two groups, and shows that stereotypical beliefs about men and women fail to predict their actual interaction behavior. A reasoned, provocative contribution to a significant area of study, this volume synthesizes important findings for researchers, scholars, and students in communication, social psychology, marriage and family studies, and gender studies. It is a useful primary or secondary text for undergraduate and graduate courses and will also be of interest to clinicians working with individuals, couples, and families
