Dr. Otto Kernberg, the internationally renowned psychoanalytic theorist and clinician, here examines the success and failure of sexual love in couples, from adolescence to old age. Dr. Kernberg considers both so-called normal and pathological relationships, including the role of narcissism, masochism, and aggression in each. The result is a book that expands the boundaries of our current understanding of love relations.

"Kernberg`s is arguably the richest psychoanalytic text on `love` (in whatever way we may choose to define this most abused of words) since Freud`s Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality." -Andrea Sabbadini, British Journal on Psychotherapy

"An extremely wide-ranging book, spanning from a biological perspective to the socio-cultural. . . . It is interesting to read both personally and professionally."-Ricky Emanuel, British Journal of Psychiatry"A creative, stimulating, readable contribution, suitable for practicing psychotherapists."-D. Sydiaha, University of Saskatchewan
