In this volume the author describes separation and the anxiety that accompanies it: the fear of imminent or anticipated separation, the fear induced by parental threats of separation and the inversion of the parent-child relationship. Dr Bowlby depicts the situations that cause us to feel fear and compares them with evidence gained from animals. His conclusion is that fear is initially aroused by certain elemental situations - sudden movement, darkness or separation - that, although intrinsically harmless, are indicative of an increased risk of danger.
