Reviews and Endorsements

'This enchanting book, packed with contemporary psychoanalytic insight, will be indispensable reading to all those seeking a fuller understanding of passion, hidden sexual longings, fantasies, fears and hopes as they manifest themselves in day-to-day life as well as in the consulting room. Kate White and Joseph Schwartz present to the reader a state-of-the-art edited volume in which sexuality becomes appropriately recognized, akin to attachment, as a core human characteristic from the cradle to the grave. The contributing authors are authoritative leaders in the field of relational psychoanalysis. Graduate students in clinical trainings, as well as their mentors, will find much here to discuss, reflect upon, and be enriched by. At the same time, this book offers the possibility of a deepened psychoanalytic understanding of sexuality to a wide readership, including anyone involved in providing (or seeking) sex education or sex therapy as well as the "love researchers".'
- Howard Steele, PhD, Associate Professor, Psychology Department at Graduate Faculty, New School University, NY; Editor, Attachment and Human Development
