David Rothman was trained in social history at Harvard University. His 1971 book, The Discovery of the Asylum, winner of the Albert J. Beveridge Prize of the American Historical Association, traced the early history of mental hospitals, prisons, and almshouses. Conscience and Convenience (1980) brought the story up to the present. In 1983, Professor Rothman joined the Columbia medical school faculty. In 1991, he published Strangers at the Bedside: A History of How Law and Bioethics Transformed Medical Decision Making. He has taken a particular interest in ethics, human rights, and medicine; he has written extensively on the ethics of human experimentation. He chaired the Bellagio Task Force on the International Traffic in Organs and is now helping to implement its recommendations.
