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.
