Facework



June 1994 | 136 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Gaining face, maintaining face and losing face all have numerous implications in the management of close relationships. This thorough review of research focuses on self-presentational aspects of communication in intimate relationships - `facework'.

The authors make a compelling case for facework as fundamental to any stage of a relationship, and in a clear and humorous manner offer insight into how to deal with problematic situations occurring in close relationships.
