The Global Politics of AIDS

Paul G. Harris and Patricia D. Siplon (eds.), The Global Politics of AIDS (Lynne Rienner, 2007). With tens of millions of people living with HIV/AIDS—and millions dead from related diseases since the early 1980s—the need to understand the causes and impact of the pandemic is manifest. In response, The Global Politics of AIDS explores power and politics at multiple levels, ranging from individual behavior to corporate boardrooms to international institutions and forces. The contributors combine careful scholarship with sensitivity to both the suffering of those afflicted and the frustration of those seeking to bring about meaningful change.
