Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This concise book is good way to introduce 1st year undergrads to the issues connected to HIV/AIDS and invite them to discuss and review inter-related issues.
This book proved to be an informative introduction to HIV/AIDS on the global scale. For anyone hoping to understand the ways the epidemic is affecting your local community, this book is a good place to start to see the big picture. The book does a good job of explaining terms used to describe HIV/AIDS and its spread, and in my opinion effectively touches on political, social, cultural, and medical issues. I was somewhat disappointed in the amount of attention given to the United States, but the situation in the U.S. doesn't describe the global situation, its only part of the many dynamics. Focusing on one country over others would have been a diservice to the purpose of the book.
This book is packed with information yet readily digested. Much of the text space is dedicated to under studied or under discussed tolls that HIV/AIDS has on family units, caregiving, transfer of skill and knowledge, efficiency of work provided by the sick and costs of stigmatization. Sprinkled throughout the book are suggestions that technical solutions (such as medication, vaccines, etc..) are not the sole method, nor necessarily the best, for preventing future infections and obtaining better quality of life for those infected.
