"Hornblum delineates the contours of the injustice in fine detail. . . In recent years historians of science and medicine have turned their attention to the paradox of American research practices involving human subjects in the wake of Nuremburg. This book is a welcome empirical contribution to the ongoing scholarly discussion. --M. Susan Lindee for "Isis: Journal of the History of Science Society, Vol. 91, No, 2, June 2000.""This admirably comprehensive story of the use of prisoners for medical research is embarrassingly painful to read . . . This encyclopedic, well-documented treatise . . . is a fascinating story."-"Journal of the American Medical Association "Hornblum's book is awesome, revealing the sanctimonious venality of American medicine . . . Excellent! Highly recommended."-"Choice "A recently released expose has sparked new interest in this controversial chapter of American medical history."-"Village Voice "A startling new book."-"Philadelphia TribuneVom Verlag:
At a time of increased interest and renewed shock over the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, Acres of Skin sheds light on yet another dark episode of American medical history. In this disturbing expose, Allen M. Hornblum tells the story of Philadelphia's Holmesburg Prison.
