Handbook of Cancer Control and Behavioral Science is an expert synthesis of what is known, what is suspected, and what is still unknown about core behavioral and sociocultural aspects of cancer control. Editors Suzanne Miller, Deborah Bowen, Robert Croyle, and Julia Rowland present a thought-provoking overview of the key areas of research, from primary prevention, to early cancer detection, to the clinical treatment of cancer, to survivor experience and bereavement, to future directions for research.

Senior researchers provide jargon-free descriptions of current approaches while identifying the most effective behavioral interventions in use for preventing and treating cancer. Yet, the focus is not limited to cancer patients; the relationship between doctor and patient, and the effects of cancer on families are also examined. In its broad scope and detailed examination of the entire continuum of cancer incidence, the Handbook is an essential, cross-disciplinary resource that will be of great use for researchers, health care providers, and mental health professionals in the fight against cancer.
