Summary "Gaining face, maintaining face, and losing face all have numerous implications in the management of close relationships. Cupach and Metts make a compelling case for facework as basic relationship currency at any stage of a relationship, whether it be formation, maintenance, or disengagement. Written in a clear, humorous style, Facework offers the reader a very pleasurable learning experience and the opportunity to gain deeper insight into the management of problematic situations occurring in close relationships. Facework provides a thorough examination of the author's research, as well as that of others, on the self-aspects of communication in intimate relationships." "Students in psychology, sociology, communication, family studies, and social work will find Facework a stimulating, informative, and indispensable volume."--Jacket
