Published in two volumes, these books provide a student audience with an excellent scholarly edition of Malthus' Essay on Population. Written in 1798 as a polite attack on post-French revolutionary speculations on the theme of social and human perfectibility, it remains one of the most powerful statements of the limits to human hopes set by the tension between population growth and natural resources. This is the two volume set.
Revision with unchanged content. Today, occupational stress management is of high importance for organisational effectiveness and has become one of the most popular methods within the scope of work-site health promotion activities. Evaluation research on the effectiveness of stress management interventions started in the early 1970’s and was mainly focused on inidividual-oriented stress management training. The number of evaluation studies on organizational-oriented stress management interventions is still very small and many questions such as the moderating role of process variables are not yet answered. This book gives an overview on occupational stress management interventions on the organisational level as well as on the individual level and explains how interventions on both levels may be combined. So far studies evaluating those combined approaches are hardly available. The study presented in this book aims at contributing to the extension of knowledge in this research field by evaluating an occupational stress management intervention combining individual and organizational oriented activities. The intervention has been realised in an European subsidiary of a large American enterprise in chemical industry. Special emphasis is placed on the role of process variables and their relation to intervention effectiveness.
Breast cancer is one of the major causes of premature mortality in women. Research suggests that psychological stress may be a contributing factor to breast cancer development. However, the molecular mechanisms responsible for such an association have yet to be clearly defined. This research work outlines the current state of knowledge on the relationship between stress and breast cancer and focuses on identifying novel molecular signals which may contribute to the effect of stress on breast physiology. With the help of molecular techniques, The Breast Cancer Susceptibility Gene 1 (BRCA1), an important regulator of the genetic processes responsible for tumor development, is identified as a target of stress signalling. In addition, the currently unknown role of genetic modifiers in the relationship between stress and breast cancer is addressed through the development of an epidemiological study examining if stress- susceptible individuals are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer. An integrative model, incorporating genetic stress susceptibility and downstream changes in the expression and activity of molecular regulators is proposed.

The personal essay has never been more popular, with the likes of Lena Dunham and Mindy Kaling breathing new life into the genre. This innovative guide to crafting modern personal essays and creative nonfiction came about when acclaimed author and professor Dinty W. Moore solicited playful writing questions from today's top writers. He then penned witty responses in the format of a "Dear Sugar"-style advice column, illustrating each response with an original, humorous sample essay. In chapter 1, Phillip Lopate asks, "I am curious how you deal honestly with male-female relations in general and specifically your past girlfriends on the page without coming off as a male chauvinist pig," and Mister Essay Writer Guy pens a sage response and example essay dishing--respectfully--on all his exes. Cheryl Strayed asks for advice about her em-dash addiction, Julianna Baggott worries that to be a great writer you must become an alcoholic, Judith Kitchen looks for an excuse to exaggerate the truth to make it more interesting, and so on. Filled with modern examples of the creative forms nonfiction can take--including scribbled cocktail napkins, Facebook posts, and Google Map pins--this gifty little book is a hilarious relief for all essayists, memoirists, and creative nonfiction writers in distress.
What do reading a book, smoking a cigarette, throwing confetti and voting in an election have in common? The answer, of course, is paper. Paper serves nearly every function of our lives. It is the technology with which we have made sense of the world. Yet the age of paper is ending. Ebooks now outsell their physical counterparts. Still, there are some uses of paper that seem unlikely to change - Christmas won't be Christmas without wrapped presents or crackers. And the language of paper - documents, files and folders - has survived digitisation. In "Paper: An Elegy" Ian Sansom builds a museum of paper and explores its paradox - its vulnerability and durability. This book is a timely meditation on the very paper it's printed on.
