Summary note:
"In Pharmaco-politics, Arthur Daemmrich challenges assumptions by comparing drug laws, clinical trials, and systems for monitoring adverse reactions in the United States and Germany, two countries with similarly advanced systems for medical research, testing, and patient care. Daemmrich proposes that divergent "therapeutic cultures" - the interrelationships among governments, patients, the medical profession, and the pharmaceutical industry - underlie national differences and explain variations in pharmaceutical markets and medical care."--BOOK JACKET.
