Sleep disturbances are common in modern society. Since the beginning of the century, populations have shown a decline in sleep duration, owing to changes in environmental and social conditions. Industry was the first to appreciate the detrimental effects of sleep disturbances on health and wellbeing. It has taken, however, many decades to understand the implications for individuals and populations of sustained sleep deprivation. This second edition follows in the footsteps of the first edition published in 2010. It maintains the focus on sleep disturbances as a universal behaviour that affects health and wellbeing in the short and long term, from childhood to adulthood to older age. It provides updates on new topics, such as sleep and cognition, epilepsy, pregnancy, cancer, pain, drowsy driving, built environment, and school times, with historical perspectives and a personal account. It is written in an accessible prose for a general readership, yet maintaining scientific rigour. © Oxford University Press 2018. All Rights Reserved.
