The Experiment Must Continue
Medical Research and Ethics in East Africa, 1940–2014
By Melissa Graboyes

The Experiment Must Continue is a beautifully articulated ethnographic history of medical experimentation in East Africa from 1940 through 2014. In it, Melissa Graboyes combines her training in public health and in history to treat her subject with the dual sensitivities of a medical ethicist and a fine historian.
