"The definitive reference for budding and experienced cancer epidemiologists alike." -American Journal of Epidemiology

"Practitioners in epidemiology and oncology will find immense value in this." -JAMA

Since its initial publication in 1982, CANCER EPIDEMIOLOGY AND PREVENTION has served as the premier reference work for students and professionals working to understand the causes and prevention of cancer in humans.

Now revised for the first time in more than a decade, this fourth edition provides a comprehensive summary of the global patterns of cancer incidence and mortality, current understanding of the major causal determinants, and a rationale for preventive interventions. Special attention is paid to molecular epidemiologic approaches that address the wider role of genetic predisposition and gene-environment interactions in cancer etiology and pathogenesis.

New and timely chapters on environmental and social-epidemiologic factors include:
• The role of social class disparities
• The role of obesity and physical inactivity
• The potential effects of electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation
• The principles of cancer chemoprevention

For both seasoned professionals and newer generations of students and researchers, this fourth edition of CANCER EPIDEMIOLOGY AND PREVENTION remains the authority in the field — a work of distinction that every lab, library, student, professional, or researcher should have close at hand.

• The most authoritative and encyclopedic text on cancer's causes, incidence, mortality, and survival patterns currently available
• Chapters oriented both by cause of cancer (e.g., biologic agents, tobacco, alcohol, obesity) and by tissue of origin (e.g., liver), each containing comprehensive overviews of future research directions
• Additional chapter-based coverage of cancer's basic concepts, magnitude, global patterns, and modes of prevention
• Features chapters commissioned and written by an unparalleled assembly of experts from the world's most prestigious academic institutions
• The essential reference work in cancer epidemiology and prevention research

• Michael J. Thun, M.D., M.S., is Vice President Emeritus of Epidemiology and Surveillance Research at the American Cancer Society.
