In these goals they are partially successful.The book provides an introduction to carcinogenesis and pathology and discusses the biology of human and experimental tumors and in vitro techniques.The initial section on the mechanisms involved in carcinogenesis includes one of the best reviews of tumor initiation and promotion that I have ever read. The following section on the pathology of human and experimental skin tumors is directed to the basic scientist
