Die meisten von Gewalt betroffenen Frauen verfügen wider Erwarten über vielfältige soziale Unterstützungsmöglichkeiten. Doch wirken sich diese nicht unbedingt nur positiv auf die Gesundheit der Betroffenen aus. In Abhängigkeit von individuellen Bedürfnissen können unpassende oder schlecht abgestimmte Arten sozialer Unterstützung sogar negative Folgen haben. Juliane Wahren untersucht, unter welchen Bedingungen welche Arten sozialer Unterstützung angebracht und hilfreich sind. Dabei zeigt sie auch eine Vielzahl von eigenen und sozialen Ressourcen auf, über die viele der gewaltbetroffenen Frauen selbst verfügen. Das heißt keineswegs, dass professionelle soziale Unterstützung prinzipiell nicht nötig ist. Eine den Bedürfnissen entsprechende – formelle wie auch informelle – soziale Unterstützung spielt eine bedeutende Rolle für Gesundheitswiederherstellung, -erhalt und erfolgreiche Lebensbewältigung trotz bestehender Stressoren.

Dana Niemann beschäftigt sich mit der Frage, welchen Stellenwert der Partner/die Partnerin bei der Bewältigung von Arbeitsbelastungen einnimmt und wie sich der Prozess der sozialen Unterstützung in der Paarinteraktion gestaltet. Mittels einer quantitativen Studie untersucht sie den Einfluss der partnerschaftlichen Unterstützung auf die Gesundheit. Weiterführende Leitfadeninterviews eruieren die Unterstützungsinteraktion in der Partnerschaft wechselseitig aus Sicht des Unterstützungsempfängers und -gebers. Dabei belegt die Autorin die hohe Bedeutung des Partners/der Partnerin bei der Bewältigung von Arbeitsbelastungen und identifiziert Determinanten für wirksame und unwirksame Unterstützungsprozesse.

Heart Disease

Environment, Stress, and Gender

Why do men get more heart disease than women? Recent global trends in heart disease show that traditional coronary risk factors, such as elevated blood pressure and cholesterol are poor candidates in explaining the gender gap in heart disease. Changes in these risk factors also cannot explain the recent cardiovascular disease epidemic among middle-aged men in Eastern Europe. This book focuses on environmental, behavioural, and psychosocial variables, as well as new risk factors of a biological nature in an attempt to understand the gender gap in heart disease. It combines perspectives from numerous disciplines, such as demography, epidemiology, medicine, nutrition, sociology, and psychology to explore the environmental, behavioural, and psychosocial influences on men's greater susceptibility to heart disease.

Operational Research and the Social Sciences

Twenty five years ago, in 1964, The Operational Research Society's first International Conference (held at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge) took as its theme "Operational Research and the Social Sciences". The Conference sessions were organised around topics such as: Organisations and Control; Social Effects of Policies; Conflict Resolution; The Systems Concept; Models, Decisions and Operational Research. An examination of the published proceedings (J.R.Lawrence ed., 1966, Operational Research and the Social Sciences, Tavistock, London) reveals a distinct contrast between the types of contribution made by the representatives of the two academic communities involved. Nevertheless, the Conference served to break down some barriers, largely of ignorance about the objects, methods and findings of each concern. In the ensuing twenty five years, although debate has continued about the relationship between OR and the social sciences, mutual understanding has proved more difficult to achieve than many must have hoped for in 1964.

Extreme Stress and Communities: Impact and Intervention is the first volume to address traumatic stress from a community perspective. The authors, drawn from among the world's leaders in psychology, psychiatry and anthropology, examine how extreme stress, such as war, disasters and political upheaval, interact in their effects on individuals, families and communities. The book is rich in both theoretical insight and practical experience. It informs readers about how to adopt a community perspective and how to apply this perspective to policy, research and intervention.

My writing career has been, at least in this one respect, idiosyncratic: it had to mark and chart, step by step, its own peculiar champaign. My earliest papers, beginning in 1942, were technical articles in this or that domain of Uralic linguistics, ethnography, and folklore, with a sprinkling of contributions to North and South American linguistics. In 1954, my name became fecklessly associated with psycholinguistics, then, successively, with explorations in my thology, religious studies, and stylistic problems. It now takes special effort for me to even revive the circumstances under which I came to publish, in 1955, a hefty tome on the supernatural, another, in 1958, on games, and yet another, in 1961, utilizing a computer for extensive sorting of literary information. By 1962, I had edged my way into animal communication studies. Two years after that, I first whiffled through what Gavin Ewart evocatively called "the tulgey wood of semiotics." In 1966, I published three books which tem porarily bluffed some of my friends into conjecturing that I was about to meta morphose into a historiographer of linguistics. The topmost layer in my scholarly stratification dates from 1976, when I started to compile what eventually became my "semiotic tetralogy," of which this volume may supposably be the last. In the language of "Jabberwocky," the word "tulgey" is said to connote variability and evasiveness. This notwithstanding, the allusion seems to me apt.

Hydrogen Materials Science and Chemistry of Metal Hydrides

The study of metal hydrides opens up promising avenues for the solution of world energy problems, as well as casting light on the interactions of hydrogen with materials, the role of hydrogen in materials science, and the chemistry of metal hydrides, all of which are discussed in this book in terms that range from a global look at the new vision of energy and how hydrogen fits into that future to reviews such as a look at nickel hydride over the last 40 years. Very specific current research in such areas as hydrogen in materials science discuss properties like superconductivity, diffusion EMF, magnetic properties, physicochemical properties, phase composition, and permeability. Hydrogen can also be used as a processing or alloying agent, and in the synthesis of battery electrodes, composite materials and alloys. The interaction of hydrogen with many metals, composites and alloys offers potential hydrogen storage systems. There is also a discussion of hydrogen sensors.
