Praise for The Handbook of Sexuality in Close Relationships

I know of no other book that brings together in a single course as much information pertaining to sexuality in the context of close relationships. With these editors and authors, I am sure that the book will contain the most current and relevant theory, research, and/or application.

— Dr. Mark Fine, University of Missouri-Columbia

A key strength of the volume is the comprehensive coverage that authors give to their topics….the entire volume strives to weave in issues of diversity….is well suited for professionals interested in couple issues or who work with couples in the area of sexuality.
