Where do you begin to look for a recent, authoritative article on the diagnosis or management of a particular malignancy? The few general oncology text- books are generally out of the date. Single papers in specialized journals are informative but seldom comprehensive; these are often preliminary reports on a very limited number of patients. Certain general journals frequently publish good in depth reviews of cancer topics, and published symposium lectures are often the best overviewes available. Unfortunately, these reviews and supplements appear sporadically, and the reader can never be sure when a topic of special interest will be covered. Cancer Treatment and Research is a series of authoritative volumes which aim to meet this need. it is an attempt to establish a critical mass of oncology literature covering virtually all oncology topics, revised frequently to keep the coverage up to date, easily available on a single library shelf or by a single personal subscription. We have approached the problem in the following fashion. First, by dividing the oncology literature into specific subdivisions such as lung cancer, genito- urinary cancer, pediatric oncology, etc. Second, by asking eminent authori- ties in each of these areas to edit a volume on the specific topic on an annual or biannual basis. Each optic and tumor type is covered in a volume appear- ing frequently and predictably, discussing current diagnosis, staging, markers, all forms of treatment modalities, basic biology, and more.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`In conclusion, Drs. Lepor and Ratliff, have performed an admirable task by offering researchers, practicing urologists, oncologists, and clinicians the most recent advances and controversial issues in an elegant and well-organised textbook. This book should be read by those who are interested in urologic oncology.'
N. Javadpour, Journal of the National Cancer Institute, vol. 82, no. 5, March 1990

`Insgesamt ein ausgezeichnetes aktuelles Buch mit z. T. kontroversem Inhalt, dessen Lekture jedem onkologisch interessierten Urologen empfohlen werden muss.'

Zeitschrift fur Urologie und Nephrologie 83, 1990
