There is endless literature on job stress, but not a single book on the subject specifically written in the context of Pakistan. The book in hand is the first ever empirical study to discuss the global problem of job stress in relation to work environment in Pakistan. It empirically tests the significance of relationship between work environment and work stress in this South Asian country. The study contains voluminous literature review on stress, which will be extremely beneficial to researchers planning to undertake fresh research on the subject, particularly with reference to Pakistan. The main objective of the study is to see whether the employees in Pakistan also suffer from the global problem of work stress; if so, what causes stress in this part of the world and what is the extent and gravity of the problem. The study also covers the gender disparities in discussion of the chief factors as well as the outcomes of stress.
