The Disappearing Male by Joan Lachkar, PhD, provides psychoanalytic/psychodynamic descriptions of eight different kinds of men who "disappear" from relationships seemingly without warning or explanation. This book can help to assist the women affected in recognizing the danger signs to prevent them from faltering in their relationship efforts. This book is significant to the awareness and self-esteem of women in relationships, the dating world, and to the therapists that treat them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Joan Lachkar's magnificent new book discusses all nationalities, across which all men disappear, especially in Muslim and Japanese cultures where men's roles with women are restricted at all times. -- Lloyd deMause, editor of The Journal of Psychohistory
Dr. Lachkar shows that Kipling's famous adage, `East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet' is crucially important in treating patients of non-Western backgrounds and especially cross-cultural couples. She shows that empathic understanding of Asian or Middle Eastern cultures is so important in successful outcomes of their treatments. -- Peter Berton, University of Southern California, Emeritus, and New Center for Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles, Emeritus
Dr. Lachkar does it again! She addresses an issue hardly mentioned in the analytic literature, the plight of the disappearing male and the women who love and are traumatized by them. This book is unique and is suitable for all mental health professionals, including the most seasoned. The concept of `disappearing' tackles the difficult terrain of dissociation where one can be physically present but not emotionally there, creating confusing, frustrating, and upsetting moments of interaction. This book contains the road maps to engage those who are disengaged. -- Nancy Kobrin, author of Banality of Suicide
