A must-have professional reference for researchers and educators in psychology, sociology, anthropology, public health, genetics, medicine, and the biological sciences, this issue of the Annual Review of Gerontology and Geriatrics discusses how complex biological, behavioral, and social systems interact to create and impact health. This knowledge is essential to maintaining positive health outcomes over the life span and across a variety of populations and settings.

With contributions by leading world scientists, this trusted annual volume reviews the current literature and presents examples of how biological factors underlie behavioral factors to impact health in later life. It also offers methods for examining these complex systems of biology and behavior, and explores how social scientists use this information in their research. Key Topics:
Genetic and environmental contributions to Alzheimer's disease and age-associated memory changes
Vascular depression, including cardiovascular implications for mental health
The impact of spirituality on health
Family comorbidity and the family context as a source of health
Stress and coping
Exercise and oxidative damage

Researching the World of Work - Strategies and Methods in Studying Industrial Relations (Paperback): George Strauss, Keith... Researching the World of Work - Strategies and Methods in Studying Industrial Relations (Paperback)
George Strauss, Keith Whitfield
R707 R599 Discovery Miles 5 990 Save R108 (15%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book, the first on industrial relations research methods, comes at a time when the field of industrial relations is in flux and research strategy has become more complex and varied. Research that once focused on the relationship between labor and management now involves a wider range of issues. This change has raised a number of key questions about how research should be done.The contributors represent four countries and a range of fields, including economics, sociology, psychology, law, history, and industrial relations. They identify distinctive research strategies and suggest approaches that might be appropriate in the future. Among their concerns are the relative value of qualitative and quantitative methods, of using primary and secondary data, and of single versus multimethod techniques.

The Evolution of the Modern Workplace (Paperback): William Brown, Alex Bryson, John Forth, Keith Whitfield The Evolution of the Modern Workplace (Paperback)
William Brown, Alex Bryson, John Forth, Keith Whitfield
R1,145 Discovery Miles 11 450 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The last thirty years have seen the world of work transformed in Britain. Manufacturing and nationalized industries contracted and private services expanded. Employment became more diverse. Trade union membership collapsed. Collective bargaining disappeared from much of the private sector, as did strikes. This was accompanied by the rise of human resource management and new employment practices. The law, once largely absent, increasingly became a dominant influence. The experience of work has become more pressured. The Evolution of the Modern Workplace provides an authoritative account and analysis of these changes and their consequences. Its main source is the five Workplace Employment Relations Surveys that were conducted at roughly five-year intervals between 1980 and 2004. Drawing on this unique source of data, a team of internationally renowned scholars show how the world of the workplace has changed, and why it has changed, for both workers and employers.
