"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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention 4 is a worthy successor to the earlier editions as the 'go to' text for cancer epidemiology. * Bruce K. Armstrong, nternational Journal of Epidemiology *
Since its initial publication in 1982, Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention has served as the premier reference work for both 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 an updated and comprehensive summary of the global patterns of cancer incidence and mortality, current understanding of the major causal determinants, and a rationale for preventive interventions. * Anticancer Research *
The much awaited fourth edition is a welcome update of the third, published in 2006. As before, it is an important addition to any university library hosting cancer researchers, health policy makers in cancer agencies, environmental health agencies, or nongovernment organisations. The editors and the 190 contributing authors comprise many highly regarded senior epidemiologists and related scientists, and this is reflected in the quality of the writing. * Freddy Sitas, Cancer Epidemiology *
This is a comprehensive summary of relevant and emerging cancer topics, including genetics and biology of cancer, incidence and mortality, risk factors and causative agents, overviews by individual cancer type, and methods for prevention and control of cancer [...] While the topics in this book are so thoroughly covered that experienced cancer epidemiologists will likely stumble across new material, the book also provides enough background information and definitions of terms for even early-career students to find it useful. This edition is clearly substantially updated, providing insights on new findings and a focus on emerging topics of interest.This will easily serve as a go-to resource for those working in the field of cancer epidemiology. * Natalie J Del Vecchio, MS, BS, Doody's *
