“The contributors do a great job of providing not just summaries of past research but also “roadmaps” for future researchers as they strive to understand why people think, feel, and behave as they do. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals.”

Choice Reviews

“Nearly a half-century after the publication of the first volume of John Bowlby's landmark trilogy, attachment theory continues to grow in depth and applicability. Simpson and Rholes have assembled an outstanding selection of timely and thought-provoking chapters. This book does much more than review recent work in the field—it sets the agenda for the next generation of attachment theory and research.”

—Harry T. Reis, PhD, Department of Clinical and Social Sciences in Psychology, University of Rochester

“Simpson and Rholes have gathered a stellar cast of contributors to produce a cutting-edge volume dealing with one of the most vibrant and central domains in psychology. This book is a wonderful interdisciplinary feast for anyone wanting to learn about current directions in attachment theory and how it is being integrated and applied across social and clinical psychology, neuroscience, health psychology, and human sexuality. Bravo!”

—Garth Fletcher, PhD, School of Psychology, Victoria University Wellington, New Zealand

“A major contribution! What is most noteworthy is that the individual chapters all go well beyond the standard review of the literature. Instead, they break new theoretical ground and chart future directions. The book is ambitious and thoughtful, and brings together many of the top scholars in the field today. It is chock full of creative ways of thinking about the role of attachment in human social functioning, making it destined to be cited for many years to come.”

—Joseph P. Allen, PhD, Hugh P. Kelly Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia

“This wonderful book is a landmark contribution to what is known about adult attachment. The superb chapters consolidate classic ideas and recent research, while each contributor identifies key directions for future research. This volume is for anyone interested in understanding how deep-seated (in)securities fundamentally shape the way we interpret and respond to what others do over the course of daily interactions in intimate relationships, parent-child contexts, and workplace settings.”

—Ximena Arriaga, PhD, Department of Psychological Sciences, Purdue University
