One of the goals for the proposed book is to bring together leading experts in the World working in multidisciplinary areas including epidemiology, biomechanics, experimental and analytical research, physical modeling, and clinical aspects of whiplash injury. The contributing authors will be submitting chapters in their area of expertise. Approximately 15 to 20 chapters will be included to cover the above aspects. We will attempt to include contributions by the federal government, industry, health care professionals, academic researchers, and various experts from the United States and abroad.
