Inclusion: the politics of difference in medical research

Author: Epstein, S.
Type: Book
Year: 2007


Using a historical approach, Epstein provides a thorough account of how the movement to reduce disparities in biomedical research in the United States created new conceptions of human research and human difference. The book offers a balanced analysis of the positive and negative effects of institutional changes on groups that are traditionally underrepresented in biomedical research and on biomedical research in general. However, Epstein concludes that the improvements have been limited.
