This well written volume convincingly places attachment theory in context with other contemporary psychoanalytic theories. Fonagy's arguments and ideas generate useful formulations that explain previously puzzling clinical challenges. Attachment theory may be a quiet revolution entering mainstream psychoanalytic theory and technique from a non-traditional source of direct observation and scientific validation. The bibliography is worth the price of the book.
