Preface

As its title suggests this book has been written by a series of international experts dealing with selective areas of colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is a common and growing disease in all developed nations of the world and there is a very extensive literature in all aspects of the disease. In fact, there is so much information available now that it is impossible for the non-expert to keep up to date. This book has been written partly to address this problem. In each chapter the authors have produced a "state of the art" contribution, the aim being to enable the reader to quickly assimilate the latest thoughts and findings on each topic.
