In this book, I have collected what I consider to be the most significant contributions to psychoanalytic and psychological understanding of the effect of object loss on adults and children. My choices are focused on those contributions most directly relevant to the clinical situation. The contributions that I consider equally important but that could not be reprinted here are listed as highly recommended readings at the end of this collection of essays. From Introduction by Rita V. Frankiel.
