Man, Medicine, and the State: The Human Body as an Object of Government Sponsored Medical Research in the 20th Century
Wolfgang Uwe Eckart
Franz Steiner Verlag, 2006 - History - 297 pages
This anthology unites articles about different aspects of scientific human experiments in the course of World War I to the 1960s. The majority of them deals with the development of medicine and life sciences as well as the national research promotion under the Nazi regime and during World War II. Studies on human experiments of French, Japanese, and US-American research enlarge the perspective on a problem of obviously international range. These empirical studies are supplemented by articles on the legal evaluation of this behaviour of scientists, as well as on the resulting movement to formulate binding transnational ethical codes on behalf of human experiments.
