"An excellent and well-organized reader." --Journal of the American Medical Association "Provides stimulating reading, and will appeal to a braod audience of clinical researchers, physicians, ethicists, historians or lay persons interested in the Nuremburg Code and the historical, legal, or ethical issues surrounding human experimentation." --Communique "Engrossing, giving the reader genuine insights into the nature of the debates." --Science "This book sheds light on keenly debated issues of both science and jurisprudence, including the ethics of human experimentation, the doctrine of informed consent, and the code's impact on today's international human rights agenda." --Issues in Law and Medicine "An excellent and well-organized reader." --Journal of the American Medical Association "The book is rich in data both on the Nazi doctors' trial and on the subsequent history of the informed-consent doctrine in clinical research. For anyone interested in the problems of clinical research on human subjects, this compendium should be a valuable reference work and a source of insights as well as relevant facts. Because it addresses a complex problem from the perspective of what may be the most extreme cases imaginable, it casts deep shadows, even while illuminating parts of its subject. But at the same time it serves to remind the reader of the temptations to which even the most scrupulous physicians, operating on the frontiers of clinical research, are exposed." --The New England Journal of Medicine "The Nazi Doctors and the Nuremburg Code should be read by all physicians, indeed by all who have an interest in medical research involving human subjects." --International Journal of Health Legislation "This book has the power to illuminate." --Social Science Medicine "The book provides a timely overview of issues surrounding the historical background of the Code and its importance to contemporary discussions, up to and including proposed research on soldiers during the Gulf War. It should be in any library that has even a modest interest in the ethics of research."--Religious Studies Review "Ranks as a welcome addition to the many reflections lately being gathered on the Nuremberg trials. Its editors, both recognized for their qualifications in bioethics, offer a well-integrated and organized collection of worthwhile essays from a broad range of fields. . . . concludes with a well-prepared summary by the editors that might well be read first. Cross references within most of the chapters add greatly to this book's effectiveness and reflect the care with which it was edited. Virtually without typographical errors, the volume is attractively presented and reasonably priced, enhanced by a careful index and a rich collection of primary sources." --Journal of the History of Medicine "Provides stimulating reading, and will appeal to a braod audience of clinical researchers, physicians, ethicists, historians or lay persons interested in the Nuremburg Code and the historical, legal, or ethical issues surrounding human experimentation." --Communique "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....In all, this volume of essays is well worth reading."--Journal of Medical Ethics "Profound questions are raised, usefully discussed..."--Disability Studies Quarterly Reviewed in Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law "This is an important book...especially in a period when genetic images of human perfection are again culturally and scientifically rampant....Worth adding to the shelf for Holocaust studies."--Holocaust and Genocide Studies
