This study 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. Human attachment is seen as an instinctive response to the need for protection against predators and one as important for survival as nutrition and reproduction.

"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)
An enthralling, pioneering and now classic account of the processes that take place in human attachment and separation.
