In this history of medicine and the medical profession in the Third Reich, the author examines the career patterns, educational training, professional organization, and political socialization of German physicians under Hitler. His discussion ranges widely, from doctors who participated in Nazi atocities, to those who actively resisted the regime's perversion of healing, to the vast majority whose ideology and behaviour fell somewhere between the two extremes. He also takes a chilling look at the post-Hitler medical establishment's problematic relationship to the Nazi past. (source: Nielsen Book Data) 9780807848586 20160528
