"Mental health problems and stress–related disorders are often the cause of early death. Cary Cooper′s and Philip Dewe′s book is a fascinating and highly readable account of the long and difficult journey to this insight. I recommend it strongly." Lennart Levi, MD, PhD, Emeritus Professor, Division of Stress Research, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden
"an informative and concise summary of landmarks in the history of stress research, with themes originating from over a hundred years of contributions to the field ... this book carries more than enough information for one to appreciate the origins of an exciting and necessary field." Andi Yi–An Shih, Ph.D. Candidate, University of British Colombia. Stress and Health, 20, 239–40, 2004
"This must be the definitive book on the history of stress, written by specialists in organisational psychology and behaviour...Work stress is given a chapter on its own , and the conclusion asks what we mean by stress and how research on the topic can be pursued." Scientific and Medical Network Review, Summer 2005
From the Back Cover
Stress: A Brief History is a lively and accessible look at the origins of the field of stress research. The book explores different theories and models of stress, examines the contributions of different researchers, identifies common themes and controversies, and culminates in a discussion of what makes a good theory and what obligations stress researchers have to those whose working lives they study.See all Product description
