520    This book reviews the recent progress made in the 
       prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of esophageal cancer.
       Epidemiology, molecular biology, pathology, staging, and 
       prognosis are first discussed. The radiologic assessment 
       of esophageal cancer and the role of endoscopy in 
       diagnosis, staging, and management are then described. The
       principles of surgical resection, radiation therapy, and 
       systemic chemotherapy for esophageal cancer are explained,
       and particular attention is paid to the multidisciplinary 
       management of early-stage cervical, thoracic, distal, and 
       junctional tumors. Up-to-date information is also provided
       on the treatment of metastatic and recurrent disease and 
       on approaches that may affect future care, such as 
       chemoprevention. ℗ℓ Esophageal cancer remains one of the 
       least studied cancers although it accounts for more than 
       400,000 deaths across the globe each year. The majority of
       esophageal cancers worldwide are squamous cell carcinomas,
       yet in the past few decades major epidemiologic changes 
       have occurred affecting the incidence of adenocarcinomas 
       in Western countries. Despite the advances in surgical and
       non-surgical therapies, overall survival has not changed 
       significantly. It is hoped that Esophageal Cancer: 
       Prevention, Diagnosis and Therapy will assist specialists 
       from a variety of disciplines, including surgery, 
       radiation therapy, gastroenterology, and medical oncology,
       in delivering optimal, up-to-date care to the benefit of
