First published in 1959, Walford''s guide to reference material achieved international recognition as a leading bibliographic tool across all subject areas. But, in the 1990s, the web transformed the information universe; and so we have now transformed Walford. The New Walford (TNW) Volume 1: Science, Technology and Medicine is the first volume of a radically different guide. Published over 3 years, TNW will form the most substantial work of its kind in the English language. This book provides a pathway through the huge quantity of information now accessible via the web. The types of material cited have been greatly widened to reflect the revolution brought about by the use of networked information; but we have made sure that print resources are not ignored where these are still valuable. If you are approaching a subject for the first time, TNW will get you on your way, guiding you to the best starting points for your query. For the information professional, TNW''s new way of categorizing resources reflects the fundamental changes that have taken place in the scientific, business, political and social information landscapes. Who is it for This new reference book will be valuable for professionals worldwide who need to suggest resources to people who are relatively unfamiliar with the nuances of a topic and who need to know where to start. The focus is on resources that are most likely to be found and used within public, government, education or business information services. If you are an LIS professional responsible for developing and revising a reference collection, new to reference work, staffing an enquiry desk, a research worker or student, you''ll welcome publication of this new work - it''s your paper portal to the world of reference resources.

Dieses interdisziplinär ausgerichtete Handbuch ist ein umfassendes Nachschlagewerk zum Thema Stressregulation und Sport. Es bietet einen fundierten Überblick zu zentralen Theorien der Stressentstehung und Stressbewältigung, zu Persönlichkeitsfaktoren, welche die Stressbewältigung beeinflussen, sowie zu den physiologischen, kognitiven, emotionalen und verhaltensbezogenen Reaktionen, die durch akute und chronische Stressbelastungen ausgelöst werden. Das Werk behandelt das Thema sowohl aus der Sicht des Gesundheitssports (Stressregulation durch Sport) als auch aus dem Blickwinkel des Leistungssports (Stressregulation im Sport). So geht es zum einen darum, inwieweit sich Belastungen des Alltags durch Sport und Bewegung besser bewältigen lassen, so dass Gesundheitsbeeinträchtigungen vermieden oder reduziert werden, und zum anderen darum, wie Sportler mit hohen Trainingsbelastungen und psychischem Druck in einer Weise umgehen können, dass die optimale Leistungsfähigkeit erhalt en bleibt. Last but not least enthält das Handbuch aktuelles Grundlagenwissen zum Einfluss von Stress auf die Gesundheit und liefert eine Übersicht zu Stressmanagement-Programmen und deren Wirksamkeit. Auch aktuelle methodische Fragen und Entwicklungen der Stressforschung werden beleuchtet. Sämtliche Kapitel wurden von ausgewiesenen Experten verfasst und sind übersichtlich strukturiert. Das Handbuch ist ein wichtiges Referenzwerk für verschiedene Professionen, d.h. sowohl bestens geeignet für Wissenschaftler wie auch Professionals im Bereich des Gesundheits- und Leistungssports, einschlägig interessierte Praktiker, Lehrende und Master-Studierende. Des Weiteren eignet es sich als ideale Textsammlung für Lehrveranstaltungen.
