"The Tuskegee Study" The Tuskegee Study was the American version of the Nazi Holocaust. In 1932 four hundred black men with syphilis were recruited into a public health study; subsequently, public health officials conspired to prevent the participants from receiving treatment for their syphilis. The ultimate goal of the Study was to autopsy the victims after their deaths. From a public health point of view, the Tuskegee Study was highly successful: 275 of the 400 blacks died before the devilish experiment could be stopped. Why were none of the conspirators ever punished? The Tuskegee story exposes the heretofore suppressed saga of a tragic episode in our nation's history. ($22.95)
