“This work is an absolute tour de force. It is the most comprehensive (indeed the definitive) account of attachment theory, science and practice. It includes an immensely valuable analysis of the ethological and psychoanalytical origins and this movement, which has had such an immense impact on the mental health sciences of our time, and of all the successive stages in and aspects of its development. The six volumes cover absolutely everything, from infant and child work to adult psychiatry, from mentalization to affect regulation and beyond. Its introduction to the currently unfolding vistas in the neuroscience of attachment is particularly exciting. Surely this is a via regia to the best possible psychiatry of the future – a psychiatry which is simultaneously psychological and biological, both clinical and empirical, humane and rigourous.”

Professor Mark Solms , University of Cape Town and Co-Chair of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society

“This six-volume collection provides a bird-eye view of “Attachment Theory”, a key concept of developmental psychology and psychiatry. Starting from selected articles of the pioneer John Bowlby, it describes the impact as well as the critiques of the original work, and covers all areas of diverse extension of this theory. This 21st- century look at Attachment theory also points to important remaining questions of this field, and is highly recommended to the next generations of clinicians, psychologists and neuroscience researchers.”
