Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Kimmel provides a helpful overview of the historical and social contexts in which attention to human service ethics has long preceded attention to research ethics ... Appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students as well as faculty and professionals in social science programs." Choice

"It is scholarly, fascinating, and very much up-to-date. I will certainly be using it in my teaching and in my research." Professor Robert Rosenthal, Harvard University

"Faced with a daunting array of human subjects regulations and the expanding role of review boards, new investigators will find Kimmel's book an invaluable guide. Interspersed with a broad range of case studies, this book is both instructive and highly informative - a thoroughly captivating introduction to the ethics of research with human subjects in the 1990s and beyond." Professor Ralph L. Rosnow, Temple University
