The Censor's Hand

Product Details

Promotional Information

This is a profoundly important book. In his inimitable prose, Schneider reveals the oppression, danger, and sheer inanity of IRB censorship. -- Philip Hamburger, Maurice and Hilda Friedman Professor of Law, Columbia Law School Schneider reveals IRB regulations for what they are, a form of censorship and prior restraint that impedes social research and undermines American universities. Let's hope that someone takes his ideas and runs with them -- to a federal court, to challenge IRBs as unconstitutional denials of free expression. -- Malcolm M. Feeley, Claire Sanders Clements Professor, Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program, Boalt Hall School of Law; President of the Law & Society Association, 2007-09 IRBs are the crabgrass of academia -- destructive, unwanted, unnecessary, relentlessly expanding. In The Censor's Hand, Carl Schneider expertly exposes their incompetence, ignorance, lawlessness, and record of killing more people than they save. He makes me glad I no longer work in a university, subject to IRB oversight. -- Howard S. Becker, author of What About Mozart? What About Murder? Reasoning from Cases This is by far the most carefully researched, lucid, incisive, and cogent critique yet of the regulation of human-subject research. It should be read by anyone committed to promoting quality improvement efforts and clinical research of the highest ethical and scientific quality or a learning healthcare system that accelerates advances in healthcare, clinical outcomes, and population health. -- Jon Tyson, MD, MPH, Vice Dean for Clinical Research and Healthcare Quality, University of Texas-Houston Medical School
