Review of the hardback: '... this practical state-of-the-art guide is recommendable for all those, who are involved in non-invasive methods for measuring the biological responses to stress in field settings.' Anthropologischer Anzeiger
"A textbook that will aid students and professionals in designing field studies of stress...The book's contributors all consider stress a dynamic process." Rachel Coker, INSIDE BU
"The scope of Measuring Stress in Humans: A Practical Guide for the Field is impressive. Editors Gillian H. Ice and Gary D. James have put together a comprehensive intellectual blend of works that discuss stress theoretically and practically in nonlaboratory (field) settings. For beginner stress researchers, this practical guide can be used to understand the many different ways that stress can be measured, gather relevant references to support areas of inquiry, access resource lists, and incorporate recommended guidelines for overall study design. For experienced stress researchers, this practical guide could be used to understand the latest research trends, uncover missing research gaps, identify alternative research methodologies to test research hypotheses, and to recognize new and advanced techniques for data analysis.
