Description:
Addressed more to health-care professionals and policymakers than to the lay public, this book by Greenwald, a professor in the University of California's School of Public Administration, makes it clear that we are not winning the war against cancer. In a well-documented text, he looks at how class, race, sex, psychological state and available treatments can affect one's chances of survival.
