Big Pharma and the Risky World of Human Subjects

By Roberto Abadie, City University of New York

 

 "Roberto Abadie has written an absorbing ethnographic study of clinical trials that focuses not on the clinic or the clinicians, the science or its development, but the research participants in phase one trials (the first stage of testing in humans). As he notes in the text, this is probably the first study to do so and, in doing so, his work fundamentally adds to our perspectives on such trials, biomedicine and the pharmaceutical and para-pharmaceutical industries. In addition, the book contributes to a growing and increasingly vocal body of work that takes anthropological or otherwise empirical perspectives on bioethics." - Nathan Emmerich, Times Higher Education

Triage and Sovereignty in West Africa's Time of AIDS

Vinh-Kim Nguyen, University of Montreal

 

"A tour de force. A Republic of Therapy is a shrewdly theorized ethnography of AIDS practices, technologies, drugs, confessions, and individuals in West Africa. Tracing how triage, confession, and activism emerged from 1995 in Abidjan, site of one of the very first HIV treatment programs in Africa, Vinh-Kim Nguyen analyses the workings and unintended consequences of a new politics of biomedical survival. Scrupulously un-romanticized, the book reveals francophone West Africans competing to stay alive in the time of AIDS, while actively linking their selves and bodies to practices of triage and confession. This sharp, urgent, and intellectually daring book brings uncommon critical insight to the violence of humanistic global health interventions and the searing paradoxes of triage."-Nancy Rose Hunt, author of A Colonial Lexicon: Of Birth Ritual, Medicalization, and Mobility in the Congo

Technoscience, Health, and Illness in the U.S.

Adele Clarke, University of California et al. 

 

"In this excellent book, Adele E. Clarke and her colleagues have meticulously mapped out the multiple dimensions of the phenomenon that they term 'biomedicalization', tracing the links between such apparently distinct phenomena as the increasing use of pharmaceutical drugs for prevention and enhancement, the new biomedical focus on risk and risk prevention, the commodification of medicine, the growing global bioeconomy, and the increased salience of the active and responsible patient. In demonstrating the socio-political, technical and epistemic interconnections between these developments, and through case studies of issues from reproduction to psychiatry, and from body imaging to biomarkers, this book makes a fundamental contribution to our understanding of the contemporary technoscientific transformation of American medicine, and one that will inform and inspire future research." - Nikolas Rose, Martin White Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics and Political Science

Ethics and Communities of Fate

Aihwa Ong, University of California & Nancy N. Chen, Scripps College

 

 "This is the first broad anthropological examination of the biotech movement across Asia. Especially useful are the efforts at understanding how biotechnology affects (and is affected by) major changes in moral experience and ethical imagination that are roiling Asian modernities. A path breaking exploration! This collection will be influential." - Arthur Kleinman, Director, Asia Center, Harvard University

 

"The need in science studies and anthropology for Asian Biotech would be hard to overstate. I was hungry for this book to use in my own teaching and writing, and the meal is as satisfying as I had anticipated. The theoretical framing is astute and generative, and the well-argued and diverse essays are thoroughly fleshed out historically and ethnographically. Nancy N. Chen, Aihwa Ong, and the contributors deserve our thanks. We have just run out of excuses for ongoing Western parochialism in science and technology studies and all of our kindred inquiries into biotechnology."-Donna Haraway, author of When Species Meet
