520    This volume, the first of its kind ever, is designed to 
       provide both laypersons and professionals with a detailed 
       description of the occurrence of each common form of 
       cancer in the ethnically, socially, and environmentally 
       complex milieu of a modern urban complex. The place is Los
       Angeles County, and the patterns of 72 different 
       malignancies are described according to race, age, sex, 
       social class calendar time (since 1972) and most notably, 
       individual neighborhood, using detailed maps of high risk.
       The book permits residents to screen the malignancies and 
       identify those of special concern locally, and to identify
       other communities with similar concerns. The pattern of 
       each malignancy is briefly discussed with reference to 
       background knowledge of causation and the degree to which 
       the observed pattern was expected on that basis. Persons 
       residing outside Los Angeles County will identify patterns
       likely to prevail in their own communities. Physicians and
       scientific investigators in California and elsewhere can 
       use the material provided to counsel patients and evaluate
       the consistency of any specific pattern of occurrence with
       each specific causal hypothesis. A detailed appendix 
       describes the source of data, provides the basis for the 
       choices made in the production of the volume, and gives a 
       perspective on the search for clusters of malignancy. * 
       Compares different types of cancers with respect to the 
       degree of non-random occurrence * Contains numerous maps 
       detailing the demographic and geographic pattern of cancer
       occurrence in Los Angeles County * Provides an empirical 
       perspective to the search for disease "clusters."
