Authoritative, detailed, and well-documented surveys of biology relevant to cancer concepts and treatment, both present and future: cytogenetics, oncogenes, retroviruses, factors governing metastasis, drug resistance, immunologic factors, growth factors. A number of chapters focus on specific neoplasms: pediatric tumors, leukemias and lymphomas, lung cancer, genito-urinary cancer, breast cancer, colorectal cancer. The surveys do not form a systematic treatment of cancer biology but do cover the important contemporary topics. Well illustrated.
