Product description


'Finally we have a comprehensive recounting and analysis of one of the most remarkable chapters of World War II and its aftermath: the crimes and trials of the Nazi doctors. With the international tribunal's expert consultant Leo Alexander as the tale's focus, the intrinsically gripping story is rendered even more fascinating through the personality of this complex and flamboyant figure. Ulf Schmidt has crafted a book that is at once sensitive to historical context and unwavering in moral judgment, while drawing from sources never before utilized. Readers will have a hard time putting this book down.' - Jonathan D. Moreno, Kornfeld Professor and Director, Centre for Biomedical Ethics, University of Virginia, USA

'Schmidt has delivered a meticulously researched and beautifully written narrative of one of the most intriguing and colourful physician experts at the Nuremberg Nazi Doctors' Trial. Justice at Nuremberg is part biography and part political, social, and cultural history. It is a vivid and disturbing account of this cornerstone event of modern medical ethics.' - Michael A. Grodin, Professor of Health Law, Bioethics, Human Rights and Psychiatry, Boston University Schools of Public Health and Medicine, USA

'... Justice at Nuremberg is a meticulously researched work that should be required reading for anyone interested in the history of medical ethics, the development of modern research ethics, or the Holocaust.' - Robert Baker, PhD, Director, Center for Bioethics, Graduate College Union University; Chair, History of Medical Ethics Affinity Group, American Society of Bioethics and Humanities, USA

' ... Schmidt has written a disturbing and shocking account of the manner in which Nazi medical experiments were exposed during the Nuremberg Doctors' Trial. The legacy of the Nuremberg Code - a landmark in the history of modern medical ethics - is of interest not only for the light its shed on the process of denazification. This powerfully argued book provides insights into the changing nature of international law and ethics and to contemporary events such truth commissions and attempts at reconciliation between states. As such it will appeal to lawyers, policy makers and historians.' - David Welch, Professor of Modern History and Director of the Centre for the Study of Propaganda at the University of Kent at Canterbury, UK

'... Schmidt has produced a fine book, on one of the darkest chapters of European history.' - Robert N. Proctor, Ferree Professor of the History of Science, Pennsylvania State University, USA
