Major topics covered include stability and change of attachment orientations across the lifespan; influences of attachment on cognitive functioning; and implications for the ways individuals experience intimacy, conflict, caregiving, and satisfaction in adult relationships.

if you have time to muck through exhaustive dynamical systems theory and clinical research, this is the book for you! otherwise, i would look elsewhere for a readable comprehensive book with relevant information regarding attachment theory and disorder..
This is a helpful guide devoted solely to the field of Adult Attachment, with some of the major players contributing. It covers recent developments in the field, particularly applying new methods to studying adult attachment and new ways of conceptualizing attachment. It also devotes time to the history of the adult attachment field, which is helpful for anyone who needs an introduction to the roots of the field, development of measures to assess attachment, etc. It has helped me immensely with my research.
