This reference for lawyers, judges, and other interested parties summarizes a broad sampling of English-language scientific literature about whiplash and related topics. Paying particular attention to the cultural context in which the whiplash problem evolved, Ferrari (a Canadian physician and consultant) evaluates the theories proposed to explain its various chronic symptoms. There are two bibliographies: one organized alphabetically by author and one organized by topic. Other supplemental materials include an overview of the anatomy and function of the neck, descriptions of commonly used diagnostic tests, and a glossary.
