Imagine an orchestra in your brain. It plays all kinds of harmonious melodies, then pain comes along and the different sections of the orchestra are reduced to a few pain tunes. All pain is real. And for many people it is a debilitating part of everyday life. It is now known that understanding more about why things hurt can actually help people to overcome their pain. Recent advances in fields such as neurophysiology, brain imaging, immunology, psychology and cellular biology have provided an explanatory platform from which to explore pain. In everyday language accompanied by quirky illustrations, Explain Pain discusses how pain responses are produced by the brain: how responses to injury from the autonomic motor and immune systems in your body contribute to pain, and why pain can persist after tissues have had plenty of time to heal. Explain Pain aims to give clinicians and people in pain the power to challenge pain and to consider new models for viewing what happens during pain. Once they have learnt about the processes involved they can follow a scientific route to recovery. The Authors: Dr Lorimer Moseley is Professor of Clinical Neurosciences and the Inaugural Chair in Physiotherapy at the University of South Australia, Adelaide, where he leads research groups at Body in Mind as well as with Neuroscience Research Australia in Sydney. Dr David Butler is an international freelance educator, author and director of the Neuro Orthopaedic Institute, based in Adelaide, Australia. Both authors continue to publish and present widely.

This much anticipated collection of stories, written by Oxford University Fellow and Pain Scientist, Dr GL Moseley, provides an entertaining and informative way to understand modern pain biology. Described by critics as 'a gem' and by clinicians as 'entertaining and educative', Painful Yarns is a unique book. The stories, some of his travels in outback Australia, some of experiences growing up, are great yarns. At the end of each story, there is a section "so what has this got to do with pain?" in which Lorimer uses the story as a metaphor for some aspect of pain biology. The level of the pain education is appropriate for patients and health professionals. The entertainment is good for everyone. You don't have to be interested in pain to get something from this book and a laugh or two!

The decade since the publication of David Butler's Mobilisation of the Nervous System has seen the rapid growth and influence of the powerful and linked forces of the neurobiological revolution, the evidence based movements, restless patients and clinicians. The Sensitive Nervous System calls for skilled combined physical and educational contributions to the management of acute and chronic pain states. It offers a "big picture" approach using best evidence from basic sciences and outcomes data, with plenty of space for individual clinical expertise and wisdom.

"Master Your Pain" is a comprehensive workbook for the person with chronic pain. It teaches powerful techniques rooted in brain/body science to help reduce pain and change what it is like to live with chronic pain. Written from personal and professional expertise with chronic pain, "Master Your Pain" compassionately empowers the reader with knowledge about pain and introduces neurobiological concepts, translating these into practical, easy-to-use techniques that address the destructive impact of persistent pain. The approaches used in this workbook are validating, non-judgmental, and can be life changing. It is not a "one size fits all" method, instead "Master Your Pain" aims to help individualize pain mastery, encouraging skepticism and systematic discovery of the utility of each skill for each person suffering with chronic pain. WHAT THEY'RE SAYING: ""Master Your Pain" insightfully creates a bridge between psychology and biology. It goes beyond what any other comparable pain book currently offers. She brilliantly delivers new tools to chronic pain patients." - JP Garofalo, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychology, Washington State University ""Master Your Pain" provides straight-forward approaches to learning to manage, cope with, and even master chronic pain. She provides a broad spectrum of easy-to-implement pain management tools; from breath-work, visualization and relaxation, to understanding how to manage daily and social life, including nutrition and interactions with your medical practitioners. At the root of all Dr. Fancher's recommendations is an understanding of the latest research on chronic pain and what has been proven to work. She is able to educate the reader throughout the book so that the person experiencing persistent pain can gain an accurate understanding of what is physiologically happening to the brain and nervous system and how this contributes to and even exacerbates the pain experience." - Allison Suran, PT, GCFP, Founder Healing Bridge Physical Therapy "Dr. Fancher, as someone who deals personally with chronic pain and as a pain psychologist, speaks with an understanding no other expert can match. I highly recommend "Master Your Pain" to all my patients and for anyone with chronic pain." - Ginevra Liptan, MD, Medical Director, The Frida Center for Fibromyalgia "The book gives great insight into the variety of techniques that can make a difference, shows how personal responsibility and work is essential and then gives clear guidance about how to do the work in a clear and effective manner. I believe this book will become an essential tool for any effective pain management programs as well as being an essential resource for any individual wanting to determine how to not let chronic pain control or limit their lives." - Robert Djergaian, MD, Medical Director, Banner Good Samaritan Rehabilitation Institute "My role as a pain management specialist became infinitely more fulfilling and effective when I met my colleague and friend, Dr Jill Fancher, to whom I hope all my patients have the benefit of learning from. I am so excited to have her workbook Master Your Pain as a resource my patients can read, use, experience and learn from as they move through their personal journey we call 'chronic pain'." - Sandra Hadenfeld, ARNP, Pain Management Specialist, Peace Health Southwest Interventional Pain Clinic

Evidence shows that patients who better understand their pain, and what pain truly is, experience less pain, have less fear, move better, exercise more and can regain hope. In this textbook, physical therapists Adriaan Louw and Emilio Puentedura deliver an evidence-based perspective on how the body and brain collaborate to create pain, teach how to convey this view of pain to patients, and demonstrate how to integrate therapeutic neuroscience education into a practice.--

From Iraq to Bosnia to North Korea, the first question in American foreign policy debates is increasingly: Can air power alone do the job? Robert A. Pape provides a systematic answer. Analyzing the results of over thirty air campaigns, including a detailed reconstruction of the Gulf War, he argues that the key to success is attacking the enemy's military strategy, not its economy, people, or leaders. Coercive air power can succeed, but not as cheaply as air enthusiasts would like to believe. Pape examines the air raids on Germany, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq as well as those of Israel versus Egypt, providing details of bombing and governmental decision making. His detailed narratives of the strategic effectiveness of bombing range from the classical cases of World War II to an extraordinary reconstruction of airpower use in the Gulf War, based on recently declassified documents. In this now-classic work of the theory and practice of airpower and its political effects, Robert A. Pape helps military strategists and policy makers judge the purpose of various air strategies, and helps general readers understand the policy debates.
