I am proud to announce the publication of my book, Ethical Imperialism: Institutional Review Boards and the Social Sciences, 1965-2009.
The book and the blog are complementary. The former traces the history of IRB review of research in the social sciences and humanities from its origins in the mid-1960s through last year, while the latter documents the ongoing debate over such review. I hope that everyone with an interest in the present debate will share my interest in its past.
