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.

Editorial 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)
