Stress Appraisal and Coping
The reissue of a classic work, now with a foreword by Daniel Goleman! Here is a monumental work that continues in the tradition pioneered by co-author Richard Lazarus in his classic book Psychological Stress and the Coping Process. Dr. Lazarus and his collaborator, Dr. Susan Folkman, present here a detailed theory of psychological stress, building on the concepts of cognitive appraisal and coping which have become major themes of theory and investigation. As an integrative theoretical analysis, this volume pulls together two decades of research and thought on issues in behavioral medicine, emotion, stress management, treatment, and life span development. A selective review of the most pertinent literature is included in each chapter. The total reference listing for the book extends to 60 pages. This work is necessarily multidisciplinary, reflecting the many dimensions of stress-related problems and their situation within a complex social context. While the emphasis is on psychological aspects of stress, the book is oriented towards professionals in various disciplines, as well as advanced students and educated laypersons. The intended audience ranges from psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, nurses, and social workers to sociologists, anthropologists, medical researchers, and physiologists.

Research on work related stress
Stress at work is a priority issue of the European Agency of Safety and Health at Work. The report addresses the following issues and questions: the nature of stress at work; stress management strategies; does work stress affect health and well-being and, if so, how?; the implications of existing research for the management of work-related stress. This report examines the difficulties involved in placing work stress in the context of other life stress factors. It is stated that work stress is a current and future health and safety issue, and, as such, should be dealt with in the same logical and systematic way as other health and safety issues.
Creating Healthy Workplaces
Creating Healthy Workplaces includes interventions that relate the efforts undertaken by researchers and organizations to reduce stress and improve the mental and physical health of employees through positive change initiatives. Those working in the field of occupational stress have received criticism that too much emphasis has been placed on negative issues and that positive initiatives have been largely ignored. This book delves into both the positive and the stress fields and compares the types of interventions each entail. Some of the interventions described target individuals and their attitudes and behaviours, others target workplace relationships, work units and the wider organization. Outcomes such as reduced occurrences of smoking, obesity, depression, elevated blood pressure, accidents and workplace injuries, absence and staff turnover are reported. The factors associated with the success of these interventions are identified and advice is given as to how you might proceed to develop worksite interventions of your own.
Networks in Contention
This book examines how interactions between organizations within the international climate change movement shape tactics and outcomes in climate change negotiations.
Macroeconomics and the Phillips Curve Myth
According to a story about economic policy that is almost universally taught in textbooks and lectures, the work of New Zealander A W H Phillips, published in 1958, led to the view that if policymakers were willing to accept inflation, they could permanently lower unemployment, but when they tried, the only result was accelerating inflation. The inflation of the 1970s was then the occasion of the rejection of 'Keynesianism' in favour of 'monetarism'. The bookanalyses in detail the economic theory of these times as it was actually presented and finds that the mistakes around the Phillips curve that have so often been said to have been foolish and crucial simplydid not occur. The result is a rewriting of the history of economic theory in this crucial period, and consequently of this aspect of the rise of monetarism and the pro-market presumptions that followed.
The Body Economic
Recessions can hurt . . . but austerity kills In The Body Economic, Dr. David Stuckler and Dr. Sanjay Basu provide hard evidence to reveal the tragic human toll of the ongoing recession worldwide. From a rise in alcoholism in the UK to scores of suicides in California to HIV outbreaks and abandoned children in Greece, the book tells the stories of people who were not bailed out and who are now bearing the brunt of the 2007 stock-market crash. The authors argue that this suffering is not inevitable. Based on a decade of groundbreaking research stretched across five continents, The Body Economic shows how key public health decisions can affect the impact of financial crises for better or for worse. Urgent and provocative, The Body Economic draws attention to a growing area of "recession medicine." It speaks to a hopeful audience, not only providing evidence of the realities of recession and illness but also presenting illuminating case studies of resilience and creative response to difficult conditions. The authors show that recession can provide opportunities to tackle long-standing public-health problems in surprising new ways, paving the way for a happier and healthier future.
