In recent years, rapid development and radical changes have occurred in the field of breast cancer research and treatment. Written by a group of internationally respected researchers and physicians, this book reviews the information currently available, identifies areas of controversy and speculates on how the subject may develop in the next decade. All aspects of breast cancer are covered, with sections focusing on biological controversies, the role of prognostic factors, early detection and prevention, systematic management in early disease and improving the quality of care for breast cancer patients. In summary, the book provides an up-to-date review of the innovative work that is currently being undertaken and introduces possible new management strategies.

This book can serve a useful purpose for those involved in breast cancer management who would like to read about alternatives to current dogma.
The book's structure is well planned. A welcome resource for the subspecialists in breast cancer.
An interesting textbook, well presented, well organized, and generally easy to read which will give one a broad view on breast cancer research and treatment. I would recommend this book as a good desk reference for practicing oncologists and as a good reference for all physicians involved in the multidisciplinary understanding, prevention and treatment of this disease.
