The History and Mystery of Breast Cancer is a fascinating study that touches on the history of medicine, the philosophy of science, and the introduction of the humanities into medical education. In it Michael Baum uses his vast experience to answer many of the most pressing questions about the disease. Provoked by two instances of breast cancer in his family, the book is “intensely personal yet contains sophisticated science”, notes Dr Margaret Spittle OBE. It is a text worthy of a wide audience. One of Britain’s most distinguished and respected surgeons, Michael Baum has held Chairs of Surgery at such prestigious institutions as Kings College London, the Institute of Cancer Research, UK, and University College London.

Oral Cancer: From Prevention to Intervention is a concise, informed and practical manual detailing the cause, deterrence and interventional treatment of oral cancer. Spanning nearly 40 years of clinical investigation, it reviews the biological basis of oral cancer, outlines primary, secondary and tertiary preventive strategies and describe a pragmatic treatment intervention protocol that specifically utilizes the ‘potentially malignant window’ to identify malignant disease at the earliest possible stage and intervention to ‘stop the oral cancer clock’ and halt the progression of this deadliest of oral diseases. The book’s author Peter Thomson has published and presented over 250 research papers in oral oncology, and is an internationally recognised authority on carcinogenesis.

George D. K. Gogichadze, Professor of at Tbilisi State Medical University, has dedicated his adult life to researching cancer, with the vast majority of his scientific publications (over 230) being dedicated to the topic. He is the author of 30 published books on the subject, and his most recent volume is no different. The Paradoxical Situation in Carcinogenesis: Optimistic Mistake or Pessimistic Truth? focuses on the ethical problems related to carcinogenesis and discusses the karyogamic theory in a new light, using new arguments to consider the prospects of cancer prevention and treatment.
