Attachment Reconsidered: Cultural Perspectives on a Western Theory

Naomi Quinn and Jeannette Marie Mageo (editors)
Palgrave Macmillan
2014

Quinn, professor emerita of cultural anthropology, helps lead a challenge to attachment theorists by examining the theory in the context of local cultural meanings, including those of childrearing practices, the cultural models of virtue that shape those practices, and the translation of shared childhood experience into adult cultural understandings through developmental and psychodynamic processes.
