""This book is of special importance. Callahan brings together in one volume the history of biomedical research in the U.S., a discussion of the goals, process, and conduct of biomedical research, and a compelling proposal for reforming the balance between research and public health policies.""--Dorothy Rice, coauthor of The Dynamics of Disability: Measuring and Monitoring Disability for Social Security Programs ""One of the foremost bioethicists of our age questions the central dogmas of biomedical research, namely that more science necessarily delivers a better life and that aging is a preventable disease. Callahan brilliantly deconstructs the myths behind medical research; his arguments and socratic inquiry will shake your complacency as it did my own.""â¿¿Sheldon Krimsky, author of Science in the Private Interest ""This book is the fruit of many years of reflection by one who has been at the center of the bioethics movement in this country. Managing to be simultaneously readable and knowledgeable, Callahan has also not been afraid to be provocative. His book will be required reading for all who want to ponder the ethics of research.""â¿¿Gilbert Meilaender, author of Body, Soul and Bioethics
