Editorial Reviews

Nursing and non-nursing scholars in the field of stress and coping synthesize the findings over the past three decades on the relationship of stress and coping to health. They intend the result to serve as a primary source for graduate students and possibly a secondary source for undergraduate students in nursing and other health-care sciences. They discuss the diverse conceptualization of the relationship and their importance in nursing, the response- oriented and stimulus-oriented theories of stress, theories that purport to describe or predict the relationships of stress and coping with health outcomes, and moderating factors affecting the relationship. They also propose a theoretical model that incorporates most of the concepts discussed previously. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
