This introductory chapter sets out the book's purpose, which is to examine scientific views about children's emotional needs and mother love in the United States from World War II until the 1970s. The central claim is that during that period, prominent researchers from various fields of study established the view that emotions are an integral part of the self and that mother love determines an individual's emotional development. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   emotional needs, children, mother love, self, emotional development
