Examining Tuskeegee PDF-The forty-year Tuskegee Syphilis Study, which took place in and around Tuskegee, Alabama, from the 1930s through the 1970s, has become a profound metaphor for medical racism, government malfeasance, and physician arrogance. Susan M. Reverby’s Examining Tuskegee is a comprehensive analysis of the notorious study of untreated syphilis among African American men, who were told by U.S. Public Health Service doctors that they were being treated, not just watched, for their late-stage syphilis. With rigorous clarity, Reverby investigates the study and its aftermath from multiple perspectives and illuminates the reasons for its continued power and resonance in our collective memory.
Karen “Very in depth research, and clearly written. As a non-historian reader at times I feel that there is too much detail, but for historians it is nice to have this information compiled in one location. The Tuskegee Syphilis study is a horrible story of whites taking advantage of blacks (1932-1972), made even more horrible by the terrible sloppiness of the science, so we can’t even tell what we may have learned from the study”
Leland “Although I had heard about the Tuskegee studies prior to reading this book, Reverby’s Examining Tuskegee revealed how superficially I understood this prominent event in both medical and African-American history. The author introduces many avenues of complexity into the history and aftermath of the study and pushes readers to constantly challenge their understanding of the societal and cultural implications of the Tuskegee study. Throughout the book, she expertly guides the reader in an exploration of where the blame lies in the twisted history of the study. While the writing was a bit dry at some points, the author clearly and effectively relayed a complete exploration of the study without the information being too overwhelming. Examining Tuskegee is a crucial read for anyone interested in the relationship between race and the healthcare system in both a historical and present-day context.”
Darla “Interesting and very informative. The content was well written. Be prepared it is a little troubling to read. Makes you wonder how the Public Health Service could do that to citizens.”

Qdawg “Very controversial “study” covered from a slightly different perspective. Writing style was too confusing, though. The chronology was difficult to follow.”
