Companions of Honour
The Order of the Companions of Honour was instituted in 1917 as an offshoot of the Order of the British Empire. Originally designed to honour 'conspicuous service of national importance' in the First World War, it is now conferred more broadly on high attainment and national renown. This volume tells the story of the foundation and development of the honour and includes short biographies of more than 300 past and present members of the Order.
All That Matters
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.
