Pain is the most frequent cause of disability in America. And pain specialists estimate that as many as thirty to sixty million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain is a complex phenomenon—often extremely difficult to treat, and surprisingly difficult to define. Just as medical literature in general neglects the experience of illness, so the clinical literature on pain neglects the experience of pain. "Camp Pain" takes an approach different from most studies of chronic pain, which are typically written from a medical or social perspective. Based on a year's fieldwork in a pain treatment center, this book focuses on patients' perspectives—on their experiences of pain, what these experiences mean to them, and how this meaning is socially constructed. Jackson explores the psychological burden imposed on many sufferers when they are judged not to have "real" pain, and by harsh moral judgments that sufferers are weak, malingering, or responsible in some way for their pain. Jackson also looks at the ways in which severe pain erodes and destroys personal identity, studying in particular the role of language. While keeping her focus on patients' experiences, Jackson explores Western concepts of disease, health, mind, and body; assumptions about cause and effect; and notions of shame, guilt, and stigma. "Camp Pain" does not attempt to resolve the uncertainties and misperceptions associated with pain but rather aims at enhancing our understanding of the wider implications of chronic pain by focusing on the sufferers themselves.

INTRODUCTION Have you ever heard of a bean bus? Well, it was a one-way ticket to New York for my family when I was a young girl growing up in dire poverty in Alabama during the 1950s. While I felt quite isolated many times, thousands of families from Alabama, Florida and other Southern states caught rides to Upstate New York, chasing the chance to make enough money to feed and clothe their families. As I begin my story in a hospital during the 1990s, it isnt the beginning of my story. It isnt even the end. No, my first reflection was the initiation for this project - the death of my mother. Though it is a clich, life really is what happens while were busy making plans. It wasnt until my dear mommas life was ending that I took the time to recall how we got to that small, sorrow-filled hospital room. In the early summer of 1959, I was a young, black girl with four younger siblings, a mother who was barely putting food on the table for us and a step-father who had headed North months earlier, in search of a job and money. My mother and I had few resources to hold the family together, and what we had was drying up quickly. Then, like an angel, my mothers cousin drove into town with promises of a job and a better life, just for the summer, in Upstate New York picking beans for the season, living on a migrant camp. After a couple of days, our small family boarded a bean bus. Barefoot and hungry, we wished for little more than enough money to buy food and pay rent when we returned home at the end of the summer. However, there were different, bigger plans for us. Situations during that season made it impossible for us to return to Alabama. Little did we know our three-month visit to New York would last over three decades. In fact, my mother never returned to the South at all to live. Instead, she embarked on a life that included divorce, more children and entering the federal welfare system. Being born to a sixteen year old who hid her baby in the woods because she feared her mother, I consider myself a diamond in the rough; every family has a diamond solitary. I was born for a purpose in my family. I believe God knew Mama needed me for what was ahead in her life. She gave birth to a son with a rare handicap when I was four years old. I was the one who would have to take care of him, the one who had to be strong for Mama during her weakness. I wrote this book for healing and closure. I left behind all the sad memories in this book. I wanted to forget the fact my family was on welfare throughout my childhood. I wanted to forget the days of going without food. I wanted to forget the domestic abuse my mother endured. I needed the affirmation that I did not do so badly amidst all the adversity in my life as a child. I wanted to forget the pain that remains. Letting go of the pain that remains in my life is due largely to my success of breaking the welfare cycle that was once a part of my existence Today, I am a better woman because of the hardship I endured. This is a story filled with sadness. It is with sincere hope that all who read this book will realize there is no greater love than the love of family.

Violence and increasing public awareness of violence mark society's contemporary condition. Sept. 11, 2001 made this condition even more indelible. Cultural Shaping of Violence proposes that violence cannot be described, let alone understond or addressed, unless tied to the cultural settings that influence it. The book's 27 chapters, researched and written by 28 scholars of seven nationalities, document violence in 22 distinct cultural settings in 17 nation-states on five continents. Internal to each society, a number of sites of violence may thrive, from the domestic sphere to social institutions and political arenas. In whatever site or guise, violence reverberates throughout the social fabric and beyond.

Immune Mechanisms of Pain and Analgesia is the first volume to discuss a new concept of immune-neural interplays leading to pain or analgesia. It argues the classical view that pain and its control are restricted to the nervous system, offering a comprehensive overview of the emerging area of immune mechanisms in pain and its control. It challenges the traditional view that pain sensation or suppression is attributed exclusively to the nervous system and presents a critical analysis of this new concept. The book is written by an internationally recognized group of researchers and discusses complex and controversial issues such as cytokines and their pain-exacerbating but also analgesic effects, the production of opioids by immune cells, peripheral analgesic and anti-inflammatory actions of opioids, immunomodulatory effects of opiates, and immunosuppressive effects of pain.
