A "social resource" refers to anything that is transacted between two people. It encompasses both the tangible (such as money and material goods) and the intangible (such as love, respect, information, or services) that are provided or withheld in people's daily lives. The exchange and availability of social resources have a wide range of impacts on everything from health, to quality of life, to social status, to motivation. Understanding "Social Resource Theory" ("SRT") is a key to both Social Psychology (both sociological and psychological), and Public Policy. The framework for the study of SRT is relatively new, beginning with an article by Uriel G. Foa in 1971. Since then, this framework has developed to include new types of social resources and new applications. The Editors of this volume have worked directly with Dr. Foa before his passing, and this volume represents a continuation and development of SRT framework to new applications, including: Quality of Life; Work Satisfaction; Interpersonal Relationships; Cognitive Development; Consumer Behavior; and, Cross-Cultural Behavior. Contributions to "Handbook of Social Resource Theory" also integrate SRT with other prevailing Sociological frameworks, including: distributive and procedural justice, social comparison theory, and development of social relationships. SRT has already established a link between social psychology and economics, and this link is explored even further. With clear applications to many fields of study, including Sociology, Social Psychology, Public Policy, and Quality of Life research, this interdisciplinary volume is a clear, systematic, and comprehensive approach to understanding "Social Resource Theory", its range of applications, and the future directions of research.
