The sordid history of Depo-Provera and the complex working relationship between the FDA, U. S. government, and big pharma.
Depo-Provera is known as an injectable hormonal birth control method, but few are familiar with its dark and complicated history. Although officially approved by the FDA in 1992, Depo-Provera was used and tested on patients, often without informed consent, since its initial development in the early 1960s.
Through a fascinating combination of archival materials and interviews, William Green crafts a landmark study of the scientific development, legal cases, policy, and institutional operations related to Depo-Provera. He exposes the drug’s history of testing without informed consent, its negative side effects, and the use of the drug as chemical castration for male sex offenders. The story of Depo-Provera’s complicated history calls for a paradigm shift from approaching pharmaceutical development for profit to a more ethical consideration of contraceptive drugs.
Contraceptive Risk is a thoroughly researched and engrossing approach to the scientific, political and institutional forces involved in health law and policy, as well as the multifaceted politics of measuring risk.
This volume is the 1960 follow-up to the 1959 publication “Famous Bombers of the Second World War: Volume One,” William Green here covers a further extensive number of aircraft focussing on the fighters used by the Axis and Allies during the Second World War. As before the types in approximate order of introduction to operational service and providing a brief developmental and operational history of each type. Includes ME Komet, Hawker Hurricane, Supermarine Spitfire, Mustang, FW190, the Russian YAK series, Hellcat, Mitsubishi Zero, BF109 and the Lockheed Lightning.
An Invaluable companion to Volume One, as beautifully and comprehensively illustrated as before.
