REVIEWS
"Emerging Thought and Research on Student, Teacher, and Administrator Stress and Coping, edited by Gordon Gates is the fifth book in this series. The volume’s eleven chapters, representing the work of twenty-three different authors, cover four related but distinct areas: student stress and coping; teacher stress; administrator stress; and new directions for research in education stress and coping. The chapters provide a very useful introduction to, and overview of, stress and coping literature and emerging research issues as they relate to education. At the same time, because the volume covers such a very broad topic, the different chapters represent an eclectic presentation of stress and coping issues, research methods, and settings from around the world; Australia, Holland, Italy, Turkey and the United States."
