About this book

Award-winning portrait of the life of the cave bear, Ursus spelaeus, in the Ice Age, drawn from the cave remnants of their colonies discovered in caves in Europe over the last hundred years. Kurtén conveys the structure, habits, and society of the bears, their Ice Age environment, sexual and racial variations, and extinction.

Celani uses case examples from his own practice to argue that domestic violence results from the tragic union between individuals with complementary personality disorders stemming from childhood abuse and neglect. Both sexes are suffering from fear of abandonment, but the abused women are also fascinated by men who make exaggerated promises of love followed by extreme rejecting behaviors.
