Review:

In this work, a number of internationally renowned specialists provide an overview of the current knowledge regarding the multidimensional phenomenon of pain. As the title indicates, this book investigates the relationship of pain to gender based on the most recent basic, clinical, and epidemiological research. Today we know that men and women react differently to nociceptive stimuli and analgesic interventions. In other words, the perception of pain is not the same between the two sexes. A better understanding of these differences can [allow] doctors to diagnose and treat painful pathologies more efficiently. That is the intention of this book. --De agenda Gynecologie/L'agende gynécologie

...as a reference source in institutional libraries, this book is invaluable as it brings together many different opinions in a single reference. --J. M. Morgan, Anesthesia and Intensive Care, Vol 33, No 4, August 2005

I believe this book deserves a place on the bookshelf of evry pain researcher, basic or clinical. It provides a thorough, comprehensive, and up-to-date review of this important topic. Reading (or even skimming through) this volume should heighten the sensitivity of every researcher to the importance of attention to sex- and gender-related issues in pain studies, as well as the importance of continued integration of basic and clinical research. --APS Bulletin
