About the Book

This volume provides a thought-provoking and timely alternative to prevailing approaches to stress at work. These invariably present stress as a ′fact of modern life′ and assume it is the individual who must take primary responsibility for his or her capacity - or incapacity - to cope.

This book, by contrast, sets stress at work in the context of wider debates about emotion, subjectivity and power in organizations, viewing it as an emotional product of the social and political features of work and organizational life.

Tim Newton analyzes the historical development of the dominant `stress discourse′ in modern psychology and elsewhere. Drawing on a range of perspectives - from labour process theory to the work
