| Book Description: |
During the late 1970s and 1980s, "cancer" underwent a transformation: what had long been a set of heterogeneous diseases marked by uncontrolled cell growth became a disease of our genes. How this happened and what it means is the story Joan Fujimura tells in a rare inside look at the way science works and knowledge is created.
