Editorial Reviews


Westaby artfully documents how the synergistic interplay of goal attainment and network dynamics informs all areas of human experience, from family dynamics to organizational function. The book is must reading for psychologists and social scientists who hunger for a paradigm that honors classic perspectives yet showcases cutting-edge ideas and methods. --Robin R. Vallacher, Ph.D., Professor, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton; Research Affiliate, Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict, and Complexity, Columbia University

How can people in groups and organizations work together to meet multiple goals? Westaby provides the conceptual sophistication needed for the successful study of this challenging research question. --Peter Gollwitzer, Ph.D., Professor, Social-Personality Psychology, New York University

Westaby makes a compelling case for this new metatheory that integrates social network analyses with human goal-striving theory. Dynamic network theory undoubtedly will become widely adopted and referenced in coming decades, making this book a landmark in social and I/O psychology. --Barbara Lee, Ph.D., Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation
