From the PublisherThe New York Times Book Review
As an authentic, exquisitely detailed case study of the consequences of racism in American life, this book should be read by everyone who worries about the racial meanings of government policy and social practice in the United States.
The Washington Post Book World
This is a valuable, superbly researched, fair-minded, profoundly troubling, and clearly written book.
C. Vann Woodward
Author of The Strange Career of Jim Crow
Bad Blood is an important book, an authentic and appalling study of how the educated deliberately deceived and betrayed the uneducated in our own times through a government agency."
Executive Director, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
Bad Blood is a shocking and bold report of scientific cruelty and moral idiocy...The moral and ethical questions this book raises come into sharp focus and are compelling.
James T. Patterson
Author of The Dread Disease: Cancer & Modern American Culture
By eschewing sensationalism, Jones offers a compelling narrative that enhances our understanding of race relations in the twentieth-century South, of professionalism in medicine, and of American liberalism. Bad Blood deserves to win a prize.
