"This book will be greeted enthusiastically by readers seeking an overview of conflict in intimate relationships. The breadth of coverage and the interdisciplinary framework used to review the field are rare and provide a welcome antidote to disciplinary myopia. CONFLICT IN INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS will appeal equally to readers from different intellectual backgrounds and should prove to be a useful text for courses in a variety of disciplines, including communication studies, psychology, psychiatry, and family studies." --Frank Fincham, Ph.D., University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
"Organized by major paradigmatic orientations, this book offers valuable insight into the genesis of research and theory on interpersonal conflict. This format also provides a useful conceptual tool for comprehending the broad array of scholarship in this broad field. Cahn's work is a novel and important contribution." --Denise Cloven, Assistant Professor of Communications, University of Wisconsin, Madison
"Professor Cahn's important work fills a void in the conflict literature. In recent years, research on intimate conflict has proliferated to the extend that it has become increasingly difficult to manage. Critical work is published in outlets that are scattered across academic disciplines and fields such that some of it is unknown to scholars.
In a well-written and organized fashion, Professor Cahn has synthesized and critiqued conflict research falling into three dominant perspectives: system-interactionist, rules-interventionist, and cognitive-exchange. He articulates their respective assumptions, research, and most importantly, measurement techniques. The focus on operationalizations in and of itself makes this volume essential for the bookshelf of scholars and students interested in intimate conflict." --Michael Roloff, Ph.D., Northwestern University
