520    "Our relationships with other people are complex, but they
       matter a great deal. In this edited volume, we review 
       recent perspectives on the connections between social 
       relationships and physical and mental health. Although the
       potential for psychological events and emotions to affect 
       health is no longer novel, our understanding of their 
       intricacies--from physiological processes to cultural 
       mechanisms--is constantly evolving. The individual 
       chapters in this book explore the myriad connections 
       between stress and illness and how these connections are 
       shaped by the quality of our relationships with other 
       people. Relationships, as examined in this volume, span 
       the full continuum--from social support to social 
       isolation--as do their benefits and costs. Throughout the 
       volume, we emphasize two key themes. First, for all the 
       reasons mentioned previously, the chapters emphasize the 
       fact that relationships matter. The quality and quantity 
       of our connections with other people predict outcomes 
       ranging from happiness to heart disease, from adjustment 
       to maladjustment, and from mortality to longevity. The 
       chapters in this volume are designed to explore the scope 
       of and the mechanisms for these associations, as well as 
       their implications for improving both health and 
       relationships. Second, the chapters emphasize the fact 
       that perceptions matter. One of the most robust 
       conclusions from the stress literature (if not all 
       psychological literature) is that people's perceptions are
       dramatic and important moderators of emotional, behavioral,
       and physiological responses. Both actual support (e.g., 
       Cohen, 2004) and perceived support (e.g., Lakey & Cassady,
       1990) are predictive of better health; both physical 
       isolation (e.g., Berkman & Syme, 1979) and perceived 
       loneliness (e.g., Hawkley et al., 2003) are predictive of 
       poorer health. A host of individual differences likewise 
       moderate the impact of social threat, caregiver stress, 
       romantic loss, and exposure to risky families. Each of the
       chapters in this volume highlights the importance of 
       perceptions and individual differences and examines the 
       reasons that these play such an important role. The 
       chapters discuss a number of related constructs under the 
       general umbrella of health, including physical and mental 
       health outcomes, as well as the emotional and 
       physiological mechanisms that may act as precursors to 
       these outcomes. In many cases, these chapters examine 
       moderators of the link between health and relationships--
       for example, the impact of a romantic loss depends in part
       on the personality and gender of the person experiencing 
       the loss. In other cases, where the mechanisms are 
       understood, the chapters focus on mediators of the link 
       between health and relationships--for example, physical 
       affection appears to be the mediating mechanism for the 
       health benefits of marriage. The topic of health and 
       social relationships spans multiple perspectives within 
       psychology and related fields, and we have attempted to 
       capture this diversity in this volume. Although the 
       primary intended audience is academic psychologists, we 
       believe that many of the chapters will be of interest to 
       health care professionals and therapists who focus on 
       relationship issues. We also anticipate this volume can be
       an excellent companion to graduate and advanced 
       undergraduate courses on the topics of stress, health, 
       emotion, and relationships"--Introduction. (PsycINFO
