Index

In this  book, the authors have not only provided the theoretical underpinning of the phenomenon of stress and coping with it, but through their analysis of several case-reports drive home the fact that there cannot be any single unitary global explanation, as the perception of stress and modalities of coping with it vary across cultures and societies. Their insights into the Indian experience are valuable and highly rewarding.
