Summary "In the late 1980s, a national outcry followed the publication of Sandra Coney and Phillida Bunkle's 'Unfortunate experiment' article in Metro magazine about the treatment of carcinoma in situ at National Women's Hospital. Medical historian Linda Bryder tackles a number of key questions. Was treatment at National Women's an 'unfortunate experiment'? Was it out of line with international norms? Did Herb Green and his colleagues care more for science than for their patients? Did women die as a result? And what were the sources of the scandal that erupted?"--Back cover
