The book provides an excellent foundation to health psychology. It brings readers up to date with past controversies and current difficulties and suggests areas for further research to promote positive health behaviours and a healthy nation - Janette C Allotey, Nurse Researcher

`This text provides a useful and refreshing addition to health psychology texts with a very applied social, and cultural focus. It would make a useful addition to any undergraduate or Masters course in health psychology -British Journal of Health Psychology

This major textbook provides an authoritative and comprehensive account of the health psychology field, focusing on core topics such as ealth and the individual, stress and coping and the linking of health psychology to experiences of health and illness.

The key features of Health Psychology are: its strong coverage of the entire health psychology discipline; its international and interdisciplinary appeal; it responds uniquely to a changing world where psychological processes need to be understood in relation to effective methods of disease prevention and health promotion; and it illustrates health psychologys relevance to the understanding of the cultural, political and economic roots of behaviour and experience.
