Foundations chapters provide reviews of historical and scientific depth in order to explain studies, events, and personalities that have had a major impact upon the development of cancer research. Key ideas in these studies still inform current research thinking. This volume features: a description of the foundation for today's unified field of cancer research; the history of specific aspects of cancer research in personal overviews; reviews of the origins of tumour and retroviruses, and current concepts of carcinogenesis, genetics, tumour progression, and growth dysregulation; and a biographical sketch of Sol Speigelman written by Gunther Stent.
