Stress and Suffering at Work: The Role of Culture and Society

Buy

This edited collection explores different strands of social constructionist theory and methods to provide a critique of the prevailing discourse of work stress, and introduces a radical new approach to conceptualizing suffering at work. Over the last three decades, stress and other forms of suffering at work (including burn-out, bullying, and issues relating to work-life balance) have emerged as important social and medical problems in Western countries. However, stress is a contested category, not (as many argue) a well-defined clinical, biological and psychological state that affects people in the same way in different cultures and at different times. Thus, a social constructionist perspective helps to shed light on new approaches to prevention and interventions of work stress. This book will be of great interest for students and scholars of sociology, anthropology, social history, history of science, psychology, communication and management, as well as to practitioners (doctors and psychologists), policy makers and employers.

I hate the term the cloud. I really do. In a surprisingly short period of time, I’ve seen the term twisted out of shape and become a marketing buzzword and applied to every bit of technology one can conjure up. I have no doubt that in a few years, the term the cloud will be relegated to the same giant dustbin for bad technology...

Enterprise Software Architecture and Design: Entities, Services, and Resources (Quantitative Software Engineering Series)
This book is about programming-in-the-large, a term coined by DeRemer and Kron [2] to distinguish the assembly of large applications from components, from the task of implementing those components themselves. Many of the principles of programming-in-the-large were earlier elucidated by Parnas in two articles [3, 4]. It is...

Beam Dynamics in High Energy Particle Accelerators
Beam Dynamics in High Energy Particle Accelerators
Given a beam of charged particles in an accelerator, the challenge for the accelerator physicist is to explain and control the behaviour of that beam. Beam dynamics provides the tools for describing and understanding the particle motion. The electromagnetic elds that determine the dynamics may arise from components such as...
