Drawing on the expertise of historical, literary and philosophical scholarship, practicing physicians, and the medical humanities this is a true interdisciplinary collaboration, styled as a history. It explores pain at the intersection of the living, suffering body, and the discursive cultural webs that entangle it in its specific moment.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In Pain and Emotion in Modern History, Rob Boddice and his collaborators offer an illuminating and provocative study of the physical, psychological and emotional aspects of pain that historically structured medical interventions into physical distress and

shaped individual experiences." - The British Journal for the History of Science

"...an indispensable contribution to the increasing scholarship on the history of pain." - Social History of Medicine

"I would recommend anyone interested in the intersect between pain and emotion to go out and buy, beg or borrow a copy. Pain and Emotion in Modern History is an impressively researched must-read, presenting pain as a multifaceted, evolving, social, historical, physiological and psychological event to which we do not have, and may never have the answer." - Medical Humanities
