This book presents research applications of a rules theory of mate relationships of several American cultures and two non American cultures. The theory is summarized in seven basic propositions, several of which have been previously tested and supported. The research contained here expands the depth of the work by examining attributes and levels of mateship in several American co cultures, one Caribbean culture, and one Asian culture, and extends the breadth of the work by moving into the areas of relational quality, maintenance, and conflict. Seven propositions presented are 1 perceived self concept support is the basis of interpersonal attraction; 2 different types of perceived self concept support are the basis for different types of interpersonal relationships; 3 different types of self concept support are the basis for entry into and increasing intensity of interpersonal relationships; 4 the type and form of self concept support is homogeneous by culture; 4 conflict which threatens self concept support on crucial relationship variables the lack of it or attacks on it is the most potentially dangerous type of conflict in interpersonal relationships; 6 negotiation of differences in perceptions of self concept support on crucial relationship variables cements interpersonal relationships; and 7 quality interpersonal relationships consist of intimacy, personal growth, and effective communication on the crucial relationship variables

Mercy/The Ransom of Mercy Carter

Deerfield, Massachusetts is one of the most remote, and therefore dangerous, settlements in the English colonies. In 1704 an Indian tribe attacks the town, and Mercy Carter becomes separated from the rest of her family, some of whom do not survive. Mercy and hundreds of other settlers are herded together and ordered by the Indians to start walking. The grueling journey three hundred miles north to a Kahnawake Indian village in Canada takes more than 40 days. At first Mercy’s only hope is that the English government in Boston will send ransom for her and the other white settlers. But days turn into months and Mercy, who has become a Kahnawake daughter, thinks less and less of ransom, of Deerfield, and even of her ‘English’ family. She slowly discovers that the ‘savages’ have traditions and family life that soon become her own, and Mercy begins to wonder: If ransom comes, will she take it?
