Humans are weak. Lacking the claws and thick skins of other animals, we are forced to rely on members of our own species to survive and flourish in the world. The fact that the human infant is born in an utterly helpless state also makes others' protective care necessary. Attachment, bonding, concern, and mutuality thus become cornerstones of human existence. Trust also enters this equation. Originating in the early mother-child relationship, trust continues to grow, get contextually refined tempered by reality testing, and gain nuances throughout the subsequent adult life. Its absence (mistrust) or malformation (distrust) contributes to psychopathology and is responsible for much intrapsychic distress and interpersonal strife. Given its formative significance and it crucial role in the therapeutic process, one is surprised by the paucity of psychoanalytic writings specifically devoted to the topic of trust and mistrust. Few, if any, monographs on trust exist. A collection of essays written specifically for this volume, it deals with the ontogenesis, psychopathology, cultural vicissitudes, and technical implications of trust and mistrust.

'Rarely has a book been more timely. Mistrust increasingly lies at the heart of political and social upheavals throughout the world. Many have lost trust in ourinstitutions and our leaders, indeed, in fellow humans - the "others" - who are especially mistrusted. Dr Salman Akhtar and ten international contributors offervaluable insights on the origins, nature and consequences of mistrust throughout the life cycle and from psychoanalytic, psychological, cultural and clinical perspectives. A book not to be missed.'- Frederick Lowy, Former Dean of Medicine, University of Toronto and President of Concordia University, Montreal'In this comprehensive and noteworthy contribution to psychoanalysis, Salman Akhtar brings into focus the ontogenetic development and interpersonal roots of trust and mistrust. Drawing on clinical, literary, cultural, historical, and even political sources, the contributors Akhtar has brought together fill a significant gap in our literature. As a result, this volume with its plurality of perspectives will become a lasting guidepost not only for psychoanalysts but clinicians at all level of training and experience.'- Shahrzad Siassi, Faculty, New Center for Psychoanalysis, Los Angeles, and author of Forgiveness in Intimate Relationships
