The unique human awareness of our own mortality enables us to ensure our perpetuation beyond death through our impact on others. This continuity of life has been profoundly shaken by the advent of wars of mass destruction, genocide, and the ever-present threat of nuclear annihilation. In The Broken Connection, Robert Jay Lifton, one of America’s foremost thinkers and preeminent psychiatrists, explores the inescapable connections between death and life, the psychiatric disorders that arise from these connections, and the advent of the nuclear age which has jeopardized any attempts to ensure the perpetuation of the self beyond death. --- from the publisher

Contents:

Prologue: the lost theme. Death and immortality. Death and emotion—psychiatric boundaries. Death and history—the nuclear image. Epilogue: awareness and renewal. Appendixes.

Reviews:

“A passionate book, at grips with the largest issues of our times.”—New York Times Book Review

“This is a brilliantly written work of scholarship. The Broken Connection is a seminal work that will probably be referred to for some years to come.”—American Journal of Psychiatry

“A truly major work. Armed with fearlessness (or raw courage), wide learning, and deep sensitivity, the distinguished post-Freudian psychiatrist and public philosopher takes us on a magnificent journey.”—Chicago Tribune Book World
