Under the Radar
Cancer and the Cold War
By (author) Ellen Leopold
Under the Radar by Ellen Leopold
Book DescriptionEllen Leopold shows how nearly every aspect of our understanding and discussion of cancer bears the imprint of its Cold War entanglement. The current biases toward individual rather than corporate responsibility for rising incidence rates, research that promotes treatment rather than prevention, and therapies that can be patented and marketed all reflect a largely hidden history shaped by the Cold War.
