In this classic work of psychology John Bowlby examines the processes that take place in attachment and separation and shows how experimental studies of children provide us with a recognizable behaviour pattern which is confirmed by discoveries in the biological sciences. He makes clear that human attachment is an instinctive response to the need for protection against predators, and one as important for survival as nutrition and reproduction.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The publication of Attachment and Loss will prove a turning-point in the history of psychoanalysis and psychology generally * Times Literary Supplement *
It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of Dr Bowlby's work... In practical terms, his ideas have modified and will continue to influence the rearing of children and the treatment of those who are disturbed. In theoretical terms, his contributions have given psychoanalysis a shot in the arm and a biological perspective that was sadly lacking -- Anthony Storr * Sunday Times *
