From its origins in the 1950s with the work of John Bowlby and Mary Ainsworth, Attachment Theory has expanded over the ensuing half century to become a central psychobiological paradigm in developmental and clinical psychology. Carefully compiled by an editorial partnership that spans both sides of the Atlantic, this new four-volume major work seeks to bring together for the first time important original papers on the subject of Attachment, making it an invaluable resource for scholars in areas from nursing to psychiatry. Opening with a newly-written introductory chapter which aims to provide a contextualising map of the field, the set is carefully divided into four volumes: Volume One: The Origins and Foundations of Attachment Theory Volume Two: The Establishment of the Attachment Paradigm Volume Three: Into the 21st Century: The Broadening Scope of Attachment Volume Four: Clinical Applications of Attachment
