Medical ethics in Imperial Germany were entangled with professional, legal and social issues. This book shows how doctors' ethical decision-making was led by their notions of male honour, professional politics and a paternalistic doctor-patient relationship rather than concern for patients' interests or the right of the sick to self-determination.

ANDREAS-HOLGER MAEHLE is Professor of History of Medicine and Medical Ethics at Durham University, UK, where he directs the Centre for the History of Medicine and Disease. He has published widely on the history of medicine, including Drugs on Trial: Experimental Pharmacology and Therapeutic Innovation in the Eighteenth Century (Rodopi 1999) and, as editor, Historical and Philosophical Perspectives on Biomedical Ethics: From Paternalism to Autonomy? (Ashgate 2002).
