Management of the Patient With Cancer is 1067 pages of contributions in 40 chapters devoted to a comprehensive goal of complete coverage of a vast field as of 1965. The contributors with one exception are from the United States. The editor is a professor of surgery in Philadelphia and therefore it is not surprising that 50 of 71 contributors are surgeons and 35 of these from the Philadelphia-New York-Boston axis. There are eight contributors in internal medicine, eight in pathology, and five in radiology.
I have used this text in my office for the past six months and find that I refer most often to the chapters in Section 1 on subjects of radiation therapy, chemotherapy, diagnosis, cancer research, and rehabilitation. Section 2 of the text, with the exception of the chapter on leukemia and lymphoma, is devoted to specific surgical approach of various organs or tissues involved with cancer.
