HOW IT HAPPENED, WHO WAS RESPONSIBLE AND WHY THE SEARCH FOR JUSTICE CONTINUES AFTER MORE THAN SIX DECADES.
“This momentous book is the first comprehensive history of thalidomide… It demonstrates how many thousands of victims could have been spared very late in the day if Chemie Grunenthal had taken any notice of the early alarms. … [It] carries conviction by its scientific rigour, and the clarity of the writing.
