Review:

"In this updated edition of the three-volume encyclopedia edited by Colditz (Washington Univ. School of Medicine), about 90 percent of the approximately 600 signed entries contributed by nearly 200 scholars are completely new... As a reference work, the set is unique in its scope, providing information about cancer epidemiology and incident rates in different regions of the world, drawn from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and from associations in countries outside the US... Summing Up: Highly recommended. All libraries. All levels."--S. H. Jeong"CHOICE" (09/01/2016)

..".As befits a topic of such importance, the articles are fact filled, detailed, and objective. The approach is scholarly and informed by current research, while at the same time, the results are intelligible to the interested lay readers as well as to undergraduates and graduate students. ...The SAGE Encyclopedia of Cancer and Society offers researchers a comprehensive, well designed, and accessible resource. With these three volumes, editor Graham A. Colditz and his contributors provide a valuable serve in describing and defining the problems cancer poses worldwide, along with the forces and various methods being used to combat it. They offer a significant amount of useful and relevant information as well as a starting point for more extensive exploration. Most academic libraries would do well to give it a series consideration. It might also find space on the shelves of larger public libraries where there is interest."--T Gilson"Against the Grain" (04/01/2016)

"The new edition of the SAGE Encyclopedia of Cancer and Society is a valuable resource for researchers and students alike and is a welcome addition to the body of work on such an important topic. Highly recommended for academic libraries and medical libraries."--S. Mofford"ARBA" (10/03/2016)
