Abstract
This book is a comprehensive and up-to-date compendium on all aspects of sarcomas of bone and soft tissues in childhood and adolescence. After introductory chapters on the history, epidemiology, and biology of pediatric sarcomas, treatment considerations are extensively reviewed, with emphasis on the use of risk-adjusted treatment approaches. The pathology and biology of this diverse group of tumors are extensively reviewed. Promising new treatment approaches are discussed, and strategies for the development of new agents are appraised. The major common pediatric sarcomas, including osteosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma and non-rhabdomyosarcoma soft tissue sarcoma, are covered in detail. The authors are internationally recognized experts who offer a largely evidence-based consensus on etiology, biology, and treatment. This handbook has far-reaching applicability to the clinical diagnosis and management of childhood and adolescent sarcomas and will prove invaluable to specialists, generalists, and trainees alike.

Abstract
Pediatric Skin of Color is the first textbook devoted to the issues of pediatric skin of color. In 2052, more than fifty percent of the United States will be of color, and currently seventy percent of the world's population is termed of color. Therefore, this book fills the need for an instructional and educational referebce work regarding these populations. Pediatric Skin of Color discusses the biology and clinical data regarding normal skin, skin conditions exclusive to individuals of color, systemic diseases of individuals of color that have a strong component of skin involvement, and the appearance and demographics of common skin diseases, comparing Caucasian and all skin of color populations. Written for dermatologists and pediatric dermatologists, this text includes data on African American, Asian (Southeast and East), Hispanic/Latino, and Middle Eastern patients, as well as Indigenous populations (i.e. Native Americans, Aborigines).
