Editorial reviews

Publisher Synopsis

Proctor's carefully argued book not only forces us to reassess the dynamics of Nazism but also challenges pervasive notions about the political neutrality and objective value of science and the moral innocence of scientists...[A] provocative study. -- Mary Nolan New York Times Book Review A chilling indictment of the pre-war German scientific community which legitimized Nazi racial theories. Jewish Chronicle It is a deeply disturbing book, concerned as it is with how fine scientific minds, many of which were at least formally committed to the practice of healing, not only "sold themselves to the devil" but, through their own theoretical musings and prejudice-tinctured social concerns, anticipated his arrival. It is an at times passionate exegesis on how "value-free" science is a disingenuous contradiction in terms and, more important, on how people who believe in so chimerical an enterprise could and can contribute to social pathology...The lessons for our own age are baldly obvious. -- Robert A. Pois Science A valuable, disturbing treatise on the darkest chapter of modern medicine. Kirkus Reviews Read more...
