This is a concise yet complete presentation of our knowledge of the various forms of cancer (and sarcoma). The subject is treated from historical and statistical points of view and as to etiology, clinical pathology, diagnosis and treatment. The study and prevention of cancer constitute one of the most important and at present most discussed problems confronting either laity or profession. The value of the book is enhanced by its reiteration of the necessity for early treatment. This can be brought about only through recognition of the earliest symptoms of cancer, and these the author constantly emphasizes throughout.
