Harriet Washington, Medical Apartheid: The Dark History Of Medical Experimentation On Black Americans From Colonial Times To The Present
Journalist and medical ethicist Harriet Washington details medical research on African-Americans from colonial times to the 20th century. She describes the Tuskegee Syphilis Study that began in 1932 and was conducted by the US Public Health Service. Almost 400 African-American men were withheld treatment for syphilis to study how the disease would affect them in its late stages. The author contends that this is just one of several experiments that shaped the way in which African-Americans relate to today's medical industry. Ms. Washington is a finalist for the 2007 National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction.

5. Did you know you can sell your used books to Powell's online,
Edited on Fri Jan-25-08 10:31 PM by Kurovski
from anywhere in the USA? You put the ISBN numbers in, and within seconds they let you know if they want them, and how much they'll give you in trade.

They send a shipping label to you, so you don't even pay postage.

Of course, you Vivala, living in the vicinity of a Powell's can go directly to a store. And that naturally would be a true pleasure for any employee on duty at the time. :-)

Edit: to put in the page...

17. Shelby Steele evicerates Obama in his segment.
I'm glad I didn't watch it all because I'm afraid he's somewhat right. On the other hand, he could have said the same thing about most of the mainstream candidates.

On the other hand, Chomsky's segment was gorgeous. "When I first started giving these talks, the turnout was the host, the organizer, someone who wanted to kill me and a drunk who'd wandered in off of the street." lol
