Klappentext

Examines the ways in which AIDS is changing our social institutions, norms and values, exploring its impact on the arts and popular entertainment, family, government, legal institutions and health services, and how it illuminates tensions between community values and individual rights.



Zusammenfassung
The impact of AIDS cannot be adequately measured by epidemiology alone. As the editors of this volume argue, AIDS must be understood as a 'disease of society', which is challenging and changing society profoundly. This book was first published in 1991.
