Summary zThis is one of the most thorough and comprehensive studies of workplace stress among university staff ever undertaken. The authors of this book have done a great service to higher education throughout the world by their systematic research and insights. On behalf of the academic community at large, I would like to thank the authors of this remarkable book.y -- Cary L. Cooper, Ph.D., CBE Pro Vice Chancellor (External Relations) and Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health at Lancaster University, England. A variety of changes to academic working conditions have resulted in an increase in occupational stress and a decrease in occupational wellbeing among university academics as well as nonacademic, or general staff. This book releases for the first time the complete results of the Australian University Staff Stress (AUSS) Project, which examined over a number of years the level, extent, and antecedents of occupational stress experienced by staff, and the consequences on individuals and universities.
