What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Gardner demonstrates that cancer was not a 'secret' hidden in American society until the 1970s, but rather a topic of great concern and activism since the early twentieth century. Although men dominated cancer research, women led the educational campaigns about cancer awareness, and both types of contributions are central to health promotion. Her analysis of cancer awareness programs is an exciting contribution to the history of women and health, the history of health education, and the history of disease.—Susan L. Smith, author of Japanese American Midwives: Culture, Community, and Health Politics, 1880-1950
