'In many fundamental ways this volume reflects both the approach and the spirit needed to address the challenge of HIV/AIDS in South Africa. There will not be one solution to the AIDS pandemic. We need to fight this battle on many fronts. We need to understand the politics, both nationally and internationally, that have conditioned the thus far inadequate response to HIV/AIDS. We need to anticipate the economic consequences of the epidemic and to prepare for them. We need to understand individual behaviour, especially of our youth, that puts too many at risk. We need to promote the activism required for change. This volume addresses these critical elements.' - Desmond M. Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus
'Sociologists, political scientists and anthropologists demonstrate the varied social forces that make the spread of Aids so much a part of the environment. Innovative essays suggest the way in which Aids denial is part of the dominant political discourse of the country, while a few examine how HIV/Aids has become an artistic metaphor'. - Anthony Egan, Mail & Guardian Online
