A study of the social meanings of the experience of chronic pain. Kotarba uses data from observation, interviews, field research, and conversations, to show how pain becomes the focal point of the sufferers world. He reviews the medical perspectives and shows how pain affects relationships with family and with doctors. He also charts the general pattern of seeking help outside traditional medicine, and the search to find some reason or significance for the misfortune.
