Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist's precision, a novelist's richness of detail, a historian's range, and a biographer's passion.The story of cancer is one of human ingenuity, resilience, and perseverance, but also of hubris, arrogance, paternalism, and misperception, all leveraged against a disease that, just decades ago, was thought to be easily vanquished in an all-out "war against cancer." It's a story of science and scientists, of centuries of discoveries, of setbacks and victories and deaths, told through the eyes of Mukherjee's predecessors and peers, training their wits against an infinitely resourceful adversary.From the Persian Queen Atossa, who instructed her Greek slave to cut off her malignant breast, to the radical surgeries of the nineteenth century, to the first recipients of primitive radiation and chemotherapy, to Mukherjee's own leukemia patient, Carla, The Emperor of All Maladies is a story of people—and their families—who soldier through toxic, bruising, and draining regimens to survive and to increase the store of human knowledge.Riveting and magisterial, The Emperor of All Maladies provides a fascinating glimpse into the future of cancer treatments and offers a bold new perspective on the way doctors, scientists, philosophers, and lay people have observed and understood the human body for millennia.Taal: Engels; Oorspronkelijke titel: Mukherjee; Afmetingen: 45x246x164 mm; Gewicht: 908,00 gram; Verschijningsdatum: november 2010; Druk: 1; ISBN10: 1439107955; ISBN13: 9781439107959; , Engelstalig | Hardcover | 2010, Medisch & Gezondheid, Geneeskunde, Simon & Schuster
