Product Description

Review

"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

Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
The fact that the concept of stress has, over the past six decades, been "the source of immense interest" (Doublet, 2000, p.41) should not disguise the fact that the term has steadily evolved over a period of several hundreds years, if not over centuries, and "its discovery in the twentieth century was more of a rediscovery" (Cassidy, 1999, p.6.). Read the first page

Stress: A Brief History was exactly what I needed to read Aug. 2 2005
By Patricia A. Hinkson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I ordered this book because it came up on a website search while I was looking for information for my Graduate thesis. I enjoyed it and it provided me the background information I needed.
