very detailed review of a sad point in American history2014年2月23日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Very in depth research, and clearly written. As a non-historian reader at times I feel that there is too much detail, but for historians it is nice to have this information compiled in one location. The Tuskegee Syphilis study is a horrible story of whites taking advantage of blacks (1932-1972), made even more horrible by the terrible sloppiness of the science, so we can't even tell what we may have learned from the study.
Successfully unearthed complexities of Tuskegee2013年4月18日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Although I had heard about the Tuskegee studies prior to reading this book, Reverby's Examining Tuskegee revealed how superficially I understood this prominent event in both medical and African-American history. The author introduces many avenues of complexity into the history and aftermath of the study and pushes readers to constantly challenge their understanding of the societal and cultural implications of the Tuskegee study. Throughout the book, she expertly guides the reader in an exploration of where the blame lies in the twisted history of the study. While the writing was a bit dry at some points, the author clearly and effectively relayed a complete exploration of the study without the information being too overwhelming. Examining Tuskegee is a crucial read for anyone interested in the relationship between race and the healthcare system in both a historical and present-day context.
