Hans Selye Physiology and Pathology Of Exposure To STRESS
A treatise based on the concepts of the General Adaptation -Syndrome and the diseases of adaption. This book is dedicated to those who suffer from stress by Hans Selye. To those:
“WHO - IN THEIR EFFORTS FOR GOOD OR EVIL, FOR PEACE OR WAR - HAVE SUSTAINED WOUNDS, LOSS OF BLOOD OR EXPOSURE TO EXTREMES OF TEMPERATURE HUNGER, FATIGUE, WANT OF AIR, INFECTIONS, POISONS OR DEADLY RAYS.
TO THOSE WHO ARE UNDER THE EXHAUSTING NERVOUS STRAIN OF PURSUING THEIR IDEAL - WHATEVER IT MAY BE TO THE MARTYRS WHO SACRIFICE THEMSELVES FOR OTHERS, AS WELL AS TO THOSE HOUNDED BY SELFISH AMBITION, FEAR, JEALOUSY, AND WORST OF ALL BY HATE.”
This is from Hans Selye's Dedication to his magnum opus Stress, with over 1,000 pages and more than 5,000 references that was published in 1950.
The frontispiece (as shown), which occupied a full page, is from an engraving by Fritz Eichenberg, a German artist who was forced to flee to the United States because of his cartoons and caricatures depicting Adolph Hitler as the devil incarnate. Eichenberg later illustrated many books and is best known for his ability to capture emotion by his portrayal of facial expressions.
