Adult Attachment: A Concise Introduction to Theory and Research (by Omri Gillath, Gery C. Karantzas, & R. Chris Fraley) is an easy-to-read and highly accessible reference on attachment that deals with many of the key concepts and topics studied within attachment theory.
"This very interesting, highly engaging book asks and then systematically answers the most important questions that many people have about attachment and close relationships, including their own. It provides a wonderful introduction to this important and vibrant theory and body of scientific findings. It should be on the shelf of anyone who is interested in the science of relationships."

Journal Special Issue
Current Opinion in Psychology, 13 - Relationships and Stress (Special Issue; Edited by Gery C. Karantzas, Jeffry A. Simpson, Marita P. McCabe)
The Current Opinion journals were developed out of the recognition that it is increasingly difficult for specialists to keep up to date with the expanding volume of information published in their subject. In Current Opinion in Psychology, we help the reader by providing in a systematic manner:
This special issue on relationships and stress "...showcases a number of excellent papers that: (a) provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art reviews of each subarea within the field of stress and relationships, and/or (b) offer new, thought-provoking theoretical models that synthesize key concepts and ideas linking stress, relationship functioning and processes, and various indicators of well-being. The papers in the special issue are essential reading for both clinicians as well as theoretical researchers in the field of relationships. ..They highlight the importance of ensuring that there is a strong theoretical base to interventions to resolve relationship problems stemming from internal and external stressors. A major strength of the papers is that they provide this theoretical understanding of how and why particular stressors impact on relationships." (Karantzas, Simpson, & McCabe, 2017, p. v).
