First published in 1974, then reissued in 1986 with a long introduction by the author, which developed the analysis in the light of recent theory and related it to work done in the field since its first publication. The late Peter Marris shows how understanding grief can help us to understand processes of change, both personal and social, and to handle them with more compassion for ourselves and others. He sees grieving as the working out of a psychological reintegration, whose principles are essentially similar whether the 'structures of meaning' of our life fall apart from the loss of a perso

Attachment across the life cycle by Colin Murray Parkes( Book )

41 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has long been suspected that many of the common psychiatric and social problems of adult life have their roots in the early relationship between the child and its mother. To explain this simple observation and to examine the part which these patterns of attachment play in the causation of psychiatric and social problems, a body of knowledge has sprung up which owes much to the pioneering work of the late John Bowlby. This book draws together recent theoretical contributions, research findings and clinical data from psychiatrists, psychologists, sociologists and ethnologists from Britain, America and Europe. Their work has confirmed the importance of the earlier research and extended it to cover attachment throughout the life cycle

The politics of uncertainty : attachment in private and public life by Peter Marris( Book )

15 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Politics of Uncertainty Peter Marris examines one of the most crucial and least studied aspects of social relationships: how we manage uncertainty, from the child's struggle for secure attachment to the competitive strategies of multinational corporations. Using a powerful synthesis of social and psychological theory, he shows how strategies of competition interact with the individual's sense of personal agency to place the heaviest burden of uncertainty on those with the fewest social and economic resources. He argues that these strategies maximize uncertainty for everyone by undermining the reciprocity essential to successful economic and social relationships. At a time when global economic reorganization is undermining security of employment, The Politics of Uncertainty makes a convincing case for strategies of co-operation at both personal and political levels to ensure our economic and social survival in the twenty-first century
