What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
Kater's important book deserves close attention from historians of medicine and German historians alike.—Isis

Kater is an indefatigable researcher, and we are once more profoundly in his debt for scouring the archives for invaluable new documentation. His analysis is equally admirable.—American Historical Review

Kater's book . . . marks yet another step toward a deeper understanding of the delicate relations of collaboration and resistance between the Nazi regime and one important segment of society, the physicians.—The Historian

[Kater] sheds new light on the motives of the perpetrators of medical criminality. . . . He [also] broadens the story's framework to indict the German medical profession before, during, and after the Nazi era. . . . This is a fine scholarly monograph for anyone interested in this morbidly fascinating subject.—Bulletin of the History of Medicine

Kater's book constitutes a brilliant attempt to explain the profound historical crisis into which medicine had plummeted during the Nazi period with the tried methods of social history. . . . An important book.—Historische Zeitschrift

The author has drawn from an extraordinary range of sources, and the weight of evidence he compiles will certainly give pause to anyone who still wants to believe that professionals kept their hands clean in this era of great and methodical crimes.—Journal of Modern History
