This review is from: Attachment: Volume One of the Attachment and Loss Trilogy: Attachment Vol 1 (Attachment & Loss) (Paperback)
Having used this text some 20 years ago and lost my original copy, it was good to be able to locate this volume via Amazon. It was in excellent condition and it was good to re-visit Bowlby's theories at a more 'mature' period of life-and after a few years of experience ! Bowlby's work has stood the test of time in many ways, but also, on reflection, revisiting some of his ideas in modernity, it still has a very valid place in the study of maternal attachment theories. This is particularly so when studying how societal nurturing and child rearing habits have changed and what the effect has been on child behaviours.
