DNA Tumor Viruses will focus on the DNA viruses in the human population that are associated with cancers. It will cover most of the viruses that are thought to contribute to human malignancy.This book will represent a comprehensive review of the field of DNA tumor virology. Right now, while there are books out there that cover individual viruses that will be also covered in this book, there is no single book that covers this topic comprehensively. The main textbook in this market, Fields, which is referred to by both reviewers, covers some of these topics but on a lower level. The only two books that are nearly as comprehensive as this one are Human Tumor Viruses, which was published by the American Society for Microbiology in 1998 and is quite outdated, and Viruses, Cell Transformation, and Cancer, which was published by Elsevier in 2001. Our book will be the only current, comprehensive review of its kind in the market.
