  • "Here is a magnificent, profoundly humane "biography" of cancer - from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the twentieth century to cure, control, and conquer it to a radical new understanding of its essence. Physician, researcher, and award-winning science writer Siddhartha Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist's precision, a historian's perspective, and a biographer's passion. (Bestseller)"
  • "Seit über fünftausend Jahren lebt die Menschheit mit Krebs. Ebenso lange stirbt sie daran. Und doch gilt Krebs als eine >>moderne<< Erkrankung, weil keine andere Krankheit unsere Zeit dermaßen prägt. Bezeichnend sind die Namen, die man dem Krebs gegeben hat: >>König aller Krankheiten<< oder >>ein Monster, unersättlicher als die Guillotine<<. In seiner perfiden Perfektion, in seiner Anpassungsfähigkeit und seiner Widerstandskraft nimmt der Krebs beinahe menschliche Züge an. Seine Geschichte gleicht einer Biografie: Es ist die Geschichte von Leid, von Forscherdrang, Ideenreichtum und Beharrlichkeit - aber auch von Hochmut, Arroganz und unzähligen Fehleinschätzungen. Siddhartha Mukherjee widmet sich seinem Thema mit der Präzision eines Zellbiologen, mit der Kenntnis eines Historikers und mit der Passion eines Biografen. Fesselnd erzählt er von der persischen Königin Atossa, deren griechischer Sklave sie möglicherweise von ihrem Brustkrebs geheilt hat, von Erkrankten im 19. Jahrhundert, die erste Bestrahlungen und Chemotherapien über sich ergehen lassen mussten - und immer wieder von seinen eigenen Patienten. ›Der König aller Krankheiten‹ wirft einen faszinierenden Blick in die Zukunft der Krebsbehandlung und liefert eine brillante neue Perspektive auf die Art, wie Ärzte, Wissenschaftler, Philosophen und Laien den kranken - und den gesunden - Körper während Jahrtausenden begriffen haben."

  • ""¿En qué punto nos encontramos en nuestra batalla contra el cáncer y cómo hemos llegado hasta aquí? ¿De qué forma ha ido cambiando nuestra imagen de esta enfermedad y como ha influido esa evolución en la propia trayectoria del mal? ¿Estamos ganando o perdiendo la guerra contra el cáncer? Esta magistral obra, ganadora del Premio Pulitzer, responde a estas preguntas partiendo de una reciente consideración: el cáncer no es sólo un fenómeno médico. Se trata también de un fenómeno social que ocupa un complejo espacio cultural y político. Su historia no puede contarse exclusivamente como un ensayo científico sino también como un relato profundamente humano. Este guarda testimonios de lucha y optimismo, de descubrimientos revolucionarios y terribles decepciones, de héroes y víctimas, y de la incansable búsqueda de una cura. Siddartha Mukherjee ha realizado una labor épica en la que aborda el cáncer con la precisión de un biólogo celular, la riqueza en detalles de un novelista, el registro de un historiador y la pasión de un biógrafo. Desde Atosa, la reina de Persia, que dio instrucciones a un esclavo para que le extirpara un pecho, hasta Carla, una de sus pacientes, Siddhartha Mukherjee aborda en este fascinante libro mas de 5.000 anos de descubrimientos, obstáculos, victorias y muerte."--Desde la descripción de la editorial."
