Shocking, sobering, and immensely consequential in its implications, Medical Apartheid is a comprehensive history of the abuse of medical experimentation on African Americans, who have for centuries served as unwilling and unwitting subjects. The product of years of prodigious research into medical journals and experimental reports long undisturbed, Medical Apartheid reveals the hidden underbelly of scientific research and makes possible, for the first time, an understanding of the roots of the African American health deficit.
