The opening chapter, entitled "Radiation Therapy," reflects the emphasis of this book on the treatment aspects of cancer. Brief discussions of biopsy and the spread of cancer follow. The book then considers the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in the principal anatomic locations. As stated in the preface, cancer of the central nervous system and questions of histogenesis and detailed morphology have been left to other works already available. The book is admirably illustrated. Although doubtless not all sections of the book will be equally accepted by other authorities in the field, it may be considered an invaluable aid by all those who diagnose or treat cancer.
