Summary "Attachment theory is one of the most popular theoretical perspectives currently influencing research in close relationships. Extremely interesting and well written, Adult Attachment draws together the diverse strands of attachment research as it exists today into a coherent account. Authors Judith Feeney and Patricia Noller give particular emphasis to dating and marital relationships and how an individual's early social experiences affect intimacy later in life. Given that the quality of intimate relationships is a key determinant of subjective well-being, concepts explored by the authors are clearly of both theoretical and practical importance. This volume presents theory and empirical work on attachment as well as on issues of conceptualization and measurement, on the relationship between attachment and working models, and on the links between attachment and other central life tasks such as work and faith." "The encompassing and readable Adult Attachment is an excellent supplementary text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in psychology, sociology, communication, family studies, and social work and for professors, practitioners, and researchers in these and related fields."--Jacket
