Abstract: The Censor’s Hand invites us to explore the murky side of formal research-ethics review in the United States, as embodied in “Institutional Review Boards” (IRBs). Amidst some 340 publications and several blogs that have taken formal research-ethics review to task, this book is the seventh detailed monograph on this topic—the others are Robert Klitzman’s The Ethics Police? (2015), Zachary Schrag’s Ethical Imperialism (2010), Laura Stark’s Behind Closed Doors (2011), and my own works, Walking the Tightrope (2002), The Seduction of Ethics (2011), and The Ethics Rupture (forthcoming). This is a particularly welcome volume. It is the second that comes from the hands of someone in medicine (Schneider is a professor of internal medicine). With surgical precision, The Censor’s Hand lays bare the inner workings and the social context of IRBs.
