Reviews and Endorsements

‘Dependence is not only a primary determinant of behavior, it is also a powerful inducer of development. By introducing new concepts, Parens and Saul have added significance to that thesis. They have set themselves the task of tracing dependence and its vicissitudes through the life cycle, from the early mother–infant dyad, and the triad of the oedipal period, through to adolescence, maturity, and senescence. In the process, the dimensions, co-ordinates, and variables of dependence emerge in all their richness.’
—Margaret S. Mahler, from the Foreword
