This volume is a sequel to the landmark work that established an exciting new field of study, Stress, Appraisal and Coping (Lazarus and Folkman, 1984). The author now explores the newest trends in research and theory, focusing on the rationale for a cognitive-mediational approach to stress and emotions. He makes clear distinctions between social stress, physiological stress, and psychological stress. By integrating both stress and emotion into one theoretical framework, with appraisal and coping as its basis, this book takes a narrative approach to both theory and research. Lazarus concludes with a look at stress and health, with a specific focus on new developments in infectious diseases, the role of the nervous system, and his view of recent changes in psychotherapy. For all upper division psychology majors, graduate students, academics, and professionals in related fields
