MEDIA REVIEWS
Winner of the George Sarton Medal, History of Science Society One of Choice's Outstanding Academic Titles for 1991 "Is AIDS a new disease or not? Yes and no, says Mirko Grmek in his subtle, intelligent book... [This] compact history is a refreshingly fair account by a first-class mind with no axes to grind."--Erik Eckholm, The New York Times Book Review "Grmek has succeeded in writing what may well be the best AIDS book to date."--Laurie Garrett, The Los Angeles Times Book Review "A masterpiece of historical analysis."--Elizabeth M. Whelan, Washington Times "An important and provocative book... Anyone concerned with the origins of the epidemic and the history of HIV will want to come to terms with [Grmek's] analysis."--Elizabeth Fee, Science "Even those who have devoured the literature on AIDS will find this a deeply stimulating book."--The New York Times Book Review
