(Review from JAMA) Malignant mesothelioma is an uncommon neoplasm usually associated with exposure to asbestos. Because of its low incidence, thorough reviews of the topic are hard to find. Harvey Pass and colleagues have edited an up-to-date, comprehensive book that includes a wide range of information, from a historical perspective to descriptions of the latest treatment. The authors . . . have written chapters on the carcinogenesis, molecular genetics, and clinical aspects of mesothelioma. Malignant Mesothelioma is suitable for a broad audience. Laboratory researchers will use it as a resource for information about the pathogenesis, animal models, molecular genetics, and cell lines of mesothelioma. . . . Clinicians will benefit from this complete guide to the presentation, prognosis, imaging, and treatment of the disease. I highly recommend this book to all who are interested in mesothelioma.
