 Preface and Acknowledgements

This book is:
An agonizing account of what doctors can do when they are transformed by theitr culture. To read of the medical experiments at Auschwitz -- 'They took us because they didn't have rabbits' -- will make it harder for us physicians ever again to be corrupted.
Howard M. Spiro, M.D. Professor of Medicine, Yale Medical School
