Abstract

ABSTRACT:

Eric Weinberg and Donna Shaw's Blood on Their Hands: How Greedy Companies, Inept Bureaucracy, and Bad Science Killed Thousands of Hemophiliacs (2017) belongs to a genre of underappreciated works that examine one of the greatest medical tragedies of the 20th century: the iatrogenic epidemics of HIV-AIDS among hemophilia patients. The book's focus on the legal fallout in the United States following this medical catastrophe typifies how and why good decision-making, effective healing, and social justice have been so elusive in our emergent age of global biocapitalism.
