Summary
The story of the war on cancer spans centuries and continents. It is a scientific story, but also a deeply human one: of doctors, researchers, and especially patients who -- through courage, suffering, and occasional hubris -- pushed the boundaries of knowledge. These people helped define cancer as the scourge of the modern age, and then mobilized the federal government and private industry to wage an all-out campaign against it -- a campaign we are still fighting. Cancer: The Emperor of all Maladies, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning bood by Siddhartha Mukherjee, tells the complete story of cancer, from its first description in an ancient Egyptian scroll to the gleaming laboratories of modern research institutions
