Abstract:

High altitude studies -- Work of national importance -- The Cornelius Rhoads award -- Control -- Crucifying the flesh -- The stigmata of starvation -- Restricted rehabilitation -- The Helinski Declaration -- The cover of time -- Unrestricted rehabilitation.

Near the end of World War II, thirty-six conscientious objectors volunteered to be systematically starved for renowned scientist Ancel Keys's study at the University of Minnesota in the basement of Memorial Stadium. Aimed to benefit relief efforts in war-ravaged Europe and Asia, the study sought the best way to rehabilitate starving citizens. Tucker captures a lost moment in American history--a time when stanch idealism and a deep willingness to sacrifice trumped even basic human needs
