This exceptional collection--a compilation of meta-analyses related to issues in interpersonal communication--provides an expansive review of existing interpersonal communication research. Incorporating a wide variety of topics related to interpersonal communication, including couples and safe sex, parent-child communication, argumentativeness, and self-disclosure, the contributions in this volume also examine such basic issues as reciprocity, constructivism, social support in interpersonal communication, as well as gender, conflict, and marital and organizational issues.

With contributions organized into five sections, this volume:
*sets the stage for independent meta-analyses;
*provides an overview of individual characteristics in interpersonal communication and the meta-analyses reflecting this theme;
*explores the dyadic and interactional approaches to interpersonal communication; and
*examines the impact of the meta-analyses on the understanding of interpersonal communication.

As a resource for interpersonal communication researchers at all levels, this volume establishes a solid foundation from which to launch the next generation of study and research.
