Each map has been carefully scanned, digitally re-projected and enlarged to the equivalent modern scale. The maps in this series are reproduced from the OS one-inch colour maps published between 1896 and 1904.

What is stress, how can we understand it, and how can we strip away the myths that surround it? Here a leading health psychologist presents a concise and accessible introduction to stress, explaining what produces it, why people vary in their response to stress, its short- and long-term effects, its relation to physiological illness and its flipside – the relaxation response. Part of the All That Matters series.
