About this book

This is the most comprehensive overview available anywhere on the broad, multi-faceted and complex topic of pain – and the rapidly evolving scientific and medical disciplines that seek to understand, assess and treat pain.

The Encyclopedia of Pain includes more than 3,000 entries and provides clear, detailed and up-to-date coverage of the current state of research, and treatment of pain. In addition, detailed essays provide in-depth information on all aspects of nociception and pain, including substrates, causes, pathophysiology, symptoms and signs, diagnoses and treatment. A thousand color figures enhance understanding of this too-little-understood topic.

Solidly structured and inclusive, this three-volume reference is an invaluable tool for clinical scientists and practitioners in academia, health care and industry, as well as students, teachers and interested laypersons.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Preparing such a mammoth book must have been a massive task. Two editors, 35 section editors and over 500 contributors … all took part. … All-in-all, this encyclopedia is an outstandingly useful resource for clinicians and scientists. … this book could be equally recommended to major medical and neuroscience libraries, most probably in the e-book format. … This is a resource for the expert: for the neurologist, the dentist, the medical student or the physiotherapist." (Martin Guha, Reference Reviews, Vol. 22 (2), 2008)
