“A remarkable work. Each section is a gem of concision, stimulus and information, combining academic rigour with wit, common sense, and literary flair. An essential text, it will be unsurpassed-except perhaps by Duschinsky himself-for the foreseeable future” – Jeremy Holmes, Visiting Professor, University of Exeter, UK
The book, which re-examines the work of key laboratories that have contributed to the study of attachment, was published in September 2020 as an open access title available under the terms of a [CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 International] licence.
