There are approximately seven million adult gay and bisexual men in the United States and 120 million adult gay and bisexual men globally. This highly readable volume of original essays explores the cultural dimensions of AIDS among men who have sex with men (MSM). The traditional emphasis in HIV/AIDS research within gay communities has focused on sexual behavior and psychological issues. Yet to better understand the social and cultural dimensions of the disease, and to halt the spread of HIV, it is essential to recognize and understand the culture of MSM. Cultural anthropologists, unquestionably, are in a unique position to achieve this understanding. Douglas Feldman has gathered a diverse group of experts to contribute to this collection, and the volume features a wealth of scholarly data unavailable elsewhere. Douglas A. Feldman is professor of anthropology at the State University of New York, Brockport. Awarded the AAA's Kimball Award in Public Anthropology in 1996 for his work exploring the connection between AIDS and anthropology, Feldman is the editor of five books, including The AIDS Crisis: A Documentary History and AIDS, Culture, and Africa.
