From our regular book review column.

The Handbook of Attachment is a comprehensive and scholarly review of a critically important issue in development— attachment. The book shows that attachment theory is central for understanding not only early parent-child relationships, but also child maltreatment, bereavement, romantic relationships, psychopathology, and therapeutic change. This well-edited volume includes high-quality contributions from leading theorists and researchers in psychology, psychiatry, and child development.
