About the Author

Paul Weindling is Professor of History of Medicine in the Department of History, Philosophy and Religion, Oxford Brookes University, UK.


Weindling's monograph is the first comprehensive inquiry to treat coerced experimentation as a distinct object of study, right down to the gory details of the tests themselves. In that vein, the book makes a tremendous contribution to existing scholarship by addressing the hitherto neglected experiences and perspectives of the victims ... An important and thought-provoking study that warrants the full attention of specialists in the field for its sophisticated documentation and revelatory insights. -- Bradley J. Nichols, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA * German History *
In this important book, Paul Weindling combines detailed original research and great sensitivity to produce a compelling study of an often-misunderstood subject. With clarity and nuance, he details the brutality of the Nazis' experiments but never forgets the humanity of the victims. The result is a genuine contribution to the scholarship on the Third Reich and its terrible crimes. * Dan Stone, Professor of Modern History, Royal Holloway, University of London *
