The Third Breast Cancer Working Conference of the Breast Cancer Cooperative Group of the European Organization for Research on Treatment of Cancer, to be held in Amsterdam on April 27-29, 1983, was the principle motive for writing this book. It was feh that a short review of the main pathogenetic conceptions and therapeutic principles which have presented themselves with regard to mammary cancer in the Course of Western history , might help to draw a more complete picture of where we stand today. It is not easy to decide which ideas, although discarded, deserve yet to be remembered and which authors from the past may be considered to be truly representative of the scientific climate of their age. Twenty centuries have produced quite a lot of ideas and the number of medical authors who advanced, or rejected, or modified, or revived them, is really uncountable. So the historian has to make a selec tion and choices are perforce subjective and open to criticism. In writing this book I tried to consult original sources in the original language as much as possible. These sources were not always strictly medical since I aimed at placing the problem of malignant breast disease - which might serve as a paradigm of cancer in general - in a somewhat wider context. For the history of medicine is not only a history of ideas, but also that of people, of institutions, of society.

This dissertation studies breast cancer care historically and ethnographically to address four questions: (1) how breast care structures and normalizes the actions of medical scientists, care providers, and women, (2) how medical scientists make breast cancer facts, (3) how medical paradigms habituate in institutions, bolster professionals, and lived through the women affected by the disease, (4) what are the emerging parameters for women's participation.

Cancer is everywhere. Around one in three of us will at some time in our lives have an unwelcome diagnosis of cancer; every day 1500 Americans and vastly more non-Americans die of the disease. For Western societies relishing health, wealth, and longevity, its continued prominence is one of thegreatest challenges to our scientists. And the illness we call cancer is extraordinarily diverse in its causation, symptoms, likelihood of effective treatment - in some sense, every patient's cancer is unique, and that is part of the problem. In this important new book, Mel Greaves explains why theold paradigms of infectious diseases or genetic disorders have proved fruitless when trying to account for the complex and elusive puzzle that is cancer. Rather, he claims that looking at cancer in its evolutionary context, we can begin to answer some of the big questions in cancer that concern usall. Drawing on both ancient and more modern evolutionary legacies, he shows how human development has changed the rules of evolutionary games, trapping us in a nature-nurture mismatch. Compelling examples, from the King of Naples intestinal tumour in the 15th Century, through the epidemic ofscrotal skin cancer in 18th century chimney sweeps, to the current surge of cases of prostate cancer illustrate his thesis. And finally, he looks at the implications for research, prevention, and treatment of cancer that an evolutionary perspective provides. Drawing on all the most recentresearch, this is the first book to put cancer in its evolutionary framework. At a time when Darwinian perspectives on everything from language acquisition to economics are gaining ground, medicine seems to have much to gain from the insights provided by evolutionary biology. Written in anexceptionally lucid and entertaining style, this book will be of broad interest to all those who wish to understand the big C, the biggest killer of them all.
