Stress has increasingly become associated with greater susceptibility to various illnesses. The condition is also costly from an economic and financial perspective, but such costs hardly reflect the human costs of emotional trauma and physical suffering that result from the illness. Women today are in a situation where both the monetary and human effects of stress take their toll as women face unprecedented pressures in accommodating the demands of home and career and personal family stresses that often result. In addition to this, while women are prone to the same stressors as men, they are confronted with potentially unique physical and psychological stressors of their own. They may also become stress "carriers" as in the abusive husband and unfair boss relationship. Ironically, despite these differences women live longer than men, although collectively they are reported to have more symptoms, illnesses, intake of drugs and doctor-hospital visits. This outstanding new book by a pioneer in stress research presents an essential analysis of this increasingly relevant subject.

`Rofé's book is a unique scientific contribution to the understanding of psychopathological phenomena. He does more to unravel the mystery of the underlying causes of psychological disorders than we've seen in a long time. His book The Rationality of Psychological Disorders is a `true endeavor that presents a definite challenge to the scientific community of Psychology'. This book is a must-read for scientists, mental health professionals and others who search for the logic and rationale in the irrational and bizarre.' Elizabeth F. Loftus, University of Washington, Past President, American Psychological Society. `The notion of repression is crucial to many psychological theories, but serious questions have been raised about it. Indeed, some investigators have questioned whether repression even exists. In this book, Professor Rofé offers provocative ideas concerning repression and its role in psychopathology in general. His ideas merit attention and I can highly recommend his book for both researchers and clinicians.' David S. Holmes, Chancellor and Distinguished Professor, University of Kansas.
