This richly-illustrated atlas-like book provides a foundation for the biological and molecular understanding of how the mammary gland develops and how breast cancer originates. The main goal is to comprehensively review in ten chapters fundamental knowledge in breast cancer. New paradigms are described in which induction of differentiation in the mammary gland can promote prevention and cure of breast cancer. The text is extremely helpful both for clinicians treating patients and researchers looking for new avenues of development.Kelsey, J.L. and Horn-Ross, P.L.
