Editorial Reviews

Review

Lederer's writing is crisp and clear, her historical documentation is exhaustive, and her social commentary persuasive. This book is an important addition to the growing literature on the history of human experimentation and medical research.

(New England Journal of Medicine)

Essential reading for anyone concerned with clinical research public policy and attitudes.

(Norman M. Goldfarb Journal of Clinical Research Best Practices)

Book Description

The first full-length history of biomedical research with human subjects in the period "before Tuskegee"—from 1890 to 1940

Verified Purchase
Most work on the ethics of using human subjects in research begins with World War II, but here Lederer shows that the topic has a much longer history than that. Her analysis of pre-WWII medical/medical-research practices puts both the WWII era AND our current practices in a context that has been lacking in previous discourse on the topic.
