Full description of the book "Doctors, Honour and the Law : Medical Ethics in Imperial Germany":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.
