Hardback
Cancer is big business. The race for the cure involves billions of dollars and has a presence in every region in the world. There are political, economic, legal and technological implications that impact society every day. The Encyclopedia of Canceraand Society is the first multi-volume resource to define the issues that surround cancer and its effects on society. With more than 800 entries, these three volumes help students, practitioners, and researchers navigate through the terminology and concepts to better understand how cancer affects us way beyond the medical conditions that are regrettably more than obvious.
