An extraordinary book

Dr Pierre Band, who in 2008 gave a series of talks on the History of Medical Oncology in Italy with the financial support of Fondo Anglesio Moroni, has recently published the book “THERAPEUTIC REVOLUTION. The History of Medical Oncology from Early Days to the Creation of the Subspecialty” (Bentham eBooks, 2014). As he says in the Preface, the positive feedback from his Italian experience encouraged him to develop the conference theme into a book.
