[A] thorough account." --The Alabama Review
Blends [Reverby's] rich insights as a noted historian and public intellectual. . . . America's historians and medical community will benefit greatly from reading Examining Tuskegee.--Journal of American History
[Reverby's] deep reanalysis of one of the most controversial and popularly misunderstood narratives of twentieth-century biomedicine accomplishes several vital new purposes and provides a comprehensive update on the study's legacy.--Journal of Southern History
Reverby offers us a complete description as well as an excellent analysis of this scandalous episode in the history of biomedical research.--Social History of Medicine
Examining Tuskegee is richly immersed in the zeitgeist of twentieth-century African American life. . . . Reverby's text is strenuously researched and duly accessible." --African American Review
This in-depth and comprehensive approach, by exploring the aftermath of the Tuskegee Study, distinguishes it from other writings on this topic. . . . The best presentation, thus far, of how race, medicine and research have intersected as a consequence of this convoluted Tuskegee Syphilis Study.--The Journal of the National Medical Association
In less competent hands, the attempt to unravel the complexities of Tuskegee would have merely replaced one entanglement with another. However, Reverby's knowledge and skill are evident on virtually every page. Written in a clear and engaging style buttressed by convincing and exhaustive research, this book is likely to remain the essential monograph on the subject for years to come.--Journal of Interdisciplinary History
A vitally important contribution to the literature surrounding the study. . . . Highly recommended.--Choice
Examining Tuskegee demonstrates in sober and convincing detail the various ways in which the Study was both ethically and scientifically corrupt.--Society
A masterful and comprehensive historical analysis. . . . A powerful story told in a powerful way. . . . Cogently illuminates the many narratives comprising this horrific chapter in our country's history. . . . This book, impressive in its scope and depth, contributes greatly to our understanding of not just the events described but also of racial and social injustice in general.--Nursing History Review
Reverby's energy, passion, insight, intelligence, industry, and originality shine through on every page. She has made a stunning contribution to our understanding of an important and tragic chapter of our history.--James H. Jones, author of Bad Blood: The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment
Examining Tuskegee places the 'Tuskegee Study' in a historical perspective that brings new meaning and insight to the issue in a way that will add to the already meaningful contribution that revisiting this study has made.--David Satcher, M.D., Ph.D., 16th Surgeon General of the United States
