Medical Apartheid Reviews
"Starred Review. This groundbreaking study documents that the infamous Tuskegee experiments, in which black syphilitic men were studied but not treated, was simply the most publicized in a long, and continuing, history of the American medical establishment using African-Americans as unwitting or unwilling human guinea pigs." - Publishers Weekly.
"Starred Review. This is a stunning work, broad in scope and well documented, revealing a history that reverberates in African Americans' continued distrust of the medical profession." - Booklist.
"Starred Review. One of her goals in writing this book, aside from documenting a shameful past, is to convince [African Americans] that they must participate actively in therapeutic medical research, especially in areas that most affect their communitys health, while remaining ever alert to possible abuses." - Kirkus Reviews.
