Summary
The text is designed to be used for an undergraduate course on cancer. It covers everything from the molecular to the clinical aspects of the subject, with a lengthy bibliography designed to assist newcomers with the cancer literature. An introduction acquaints students with the biological principles of cancer and the human dimensions of the disease by considering genuine cases of cancer in fictionalized letters. Other chapters discuss cancer pathology, metastasis, carcinogenesis, genetics, oncogenes and tumor suppressors, epidemiology, and the biological basis of cancer treatment. A glossary of cancer-related terms is included. Upper-division undergraduates with a background in freshman biology and chemistry, as well as beginning graduate students, will find this a most useful text
