Product Description


fine collection of seventeen essays, written by prominent scholars in the field ... makes me appreciate the Nuremberg Code as a radical innovation in its time and as a milestone in the development of the consent doctrine in human experimentation ... renews my respect for the importance of institutional review boards as they struggle to implement the spirit of the Nuremberg Code by ensuring proper consent and protecting subects' welfare in today's research world. (Theoretical Medicine)

This laudable collection of essays does much to dispel the confusion and put the whole episode in a proper perspective for those of us who need to know ... this volume of essays is well worth reading. (Claire Gilbert Foster, King's College, London, Journal of Medical Ethics, 1995, 21)

Multi-faceted 31 Jan 2002
By Cara Dufrene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is wonderful! It provides information on not only Nazis and their medical experiments, but the ethics (or the lack thereof) behind it all. It also delves into medical ethics in general, including the U.S.'s not so pleasant past. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Nazi medical experiments or medical ethics.
