IS THERE EVIDENCE THAT PSYCHOSOCIAL FACTORS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO HEART DISESASE? Until recently such a theory might have seemed unsubstaintiated with little scientific basis. In this book, written by the world′s leading authorities, evidence from the existing research into the relationship between psychosocial stressors and heart disease is reviewed, enabling some solid conclusions to be drawn.

This is a comprehensive text that discusses the many aspects of this complex subject.
Chapters include:

Social class and coronary disease

The life course, stress and heart disease

Work and coronary heart disease

Social support and coronary heart disease

Hostility and heart disease

Depression and coronary heart desease

Impact of stress on diet

Stress and smoking

Psycho–physiological responsivity in coronary heart disease

Stress mechanisms and coronary heart disease

Arterial and myocardial structure and function

Social and psychosocial influences on sudden cardiac death

Stress and gene environment: interactions to coronary heart disease

Psychosocial interventions in coronary heart disease

Because of the profound implications for risk and prevention, this book will be of intense interest to cardiologists, psychologists, epidemiologists, and all those who manage patients with heart disease.
