Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Oncological dating begins in 2698 BC when a Chinese physician<-- >author of the <-->gave the first description of tumors and included five forms of therapy: spiritual cure, pharmacology, diet, acupuncture, and treatment of respiratory diseases. This chronology ends in 1999 when Jan Walboomers of the Free University of Amsterdam and Michele Manos of Johns Hopkins provide evidence that the human papilloma virus is present in 99.7% of all cases of cervical cancer. Occasional b&w photos and drawings punctuate this chronology (exact dates not included) of 10- to 35-word descriptions, often technical, of each noteworthy occurrence. Lacks index and bibliography.
