Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Most research in the field of attachment is on the experiences of attachment, separation and loss, and their developmental course and effects. This book widens our vision to the public domain, to consider the ways in which social institutions, culture and social policy may diminish our ability to make and maintain secure attachments. It argues that collective human security depends in part on the quality of attachments amongst individuals, a quality which, in turn, is conditioned by the structures of public life. The book invites its readers to reflect on those social processes that put our security at risk and to explore the prospects for enabling change.

Part One introduces readers to the basic principles of Attachment Theory and their value in helping us understand why secure Attachments are so important to the health of persons and communities. In Part Two, contributors reflect upon some of the complex connections between public life and the quality of our Attachments. Part Three considers strategies for enabling change so that our culture, social policies and institutional practices can come to embrace the principle that Attachments and Affection Bonds matter for human security.
