Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198725906, Hardcover)

Epilepsy is more than just a physical condition; it has cultural, geographic, and historical significance which course deeper than the status of neurological entity, and which defy a single perspective. The End of Epilepsy? is a beautifully illustrated, authoritative, and engaging history of medical developments during the 'modern era' of epilepsy, which began with the introduction of Bromides and Hughlings-Jackson's definition of epilepsy in 1860.

This thought-provoking book comprehensively covers the various classification theories that have been developed over the past 150 years. It explores the technological advances, and the different management techniques, such as drugs and surgical interventions, which have been applied to epilepsy up to the present day.

By presenting an overview of the advances, improvements, and issues that have clouded medical, social, and political progress since the condition was defined, the authors critically examine ongoing research into new treatments for epilepsy. The book also explores the application of current and future clinical studies, and provides an insight into the complex underpinnings of scientific and medical practice.
