"Not one of the women was warned of the peril she was in. While the medical profession at the largest women's hospital in the country closed ranks and kept up an unbroken silence, the women continued to come to the hospital like lambs to the slaughter. This revealing book by Sandra Coney tells the full story behind the inquiry into the treatment of patients with carcinoma in situ at Auckland's National Women's Hospital. Pulling no punches it takes us behind the scenes, revealing many previously unpublished details about what came to be known as 'the unfortunate experiment'. It tells of the long battle to reveal the facts of Professor Herbert Green's treatment of patients with carcinoma in situ, recalls some of the drama and the revelations of Judge Cartwright's inquiry, and asks penetrating questions about the treatment of women by the medical profession."
