"Students will find the comprehensive coverage of HIV/AIDS extremely useful for research or for understanding the issue beyond the introductory level. In addition to the standard information one would expect, the text offers interesting surprises, such as the chapter devoted to HIV/AIDS as it is presented in popular culture and a study of urban myths and their ability to skew society's perception of the disease. . . . This definitive guide for one of the most controversial medical issues of today and its extensive reference section will encourage further reading and research." - VOYA
