The purpose of this book, to serve as a simplified presentation for the general medical and dental practitioner, has been accomplished. The specialist too, perhaps, will find it of some interest.
The text is rather well written, and the illustrations are good, but while the discussion of the present status of cancer research is recent, a book of this nature becomes dated because of the strides that are being made in this field. Also, the section on precancerous oral lesions should have been somewhat more extensive.
The contents are arranged in three main parts: part 1, the cancer problem; part 2, clinical aspects of oral and facial cancer, with relation to carcinoma of the soft tissues, cancer of the jaws and a discussion of cancer in childhood, and part 3, control of oral and facial cancer in regard to the role of the general practitioner and the specialist.
