MEDIA REVIEWS
"Stolley (sociology and women's and gender studies, Virginia Wesleyan College, Norfolk) and Glass (sociology, Collin County Community College, Texas) contribute a volume on the retroviral disease to the series providing general readers and non-specialist students a basic foundation in topics and issues in medicine and health. After summarizing the current medical, epidemiological, and public health perspectives on HIV/AIDS, they discuss such issues as policy responses popular culture, adolescents and young adults, drug users, and prisons. A chronology appears in a final section along with texts of some primary documents and a directory of organizations." - SciTech Book News
"While tomes on HIV/AIDS abound, what sets this one apart is its clear and very accessible language. HIV/AIDS is appropriate and highly recommended for public libraries and undergraduate academic collections." - ARBAonline
"This volume is suitable for students and general readers who need a basic understanding of HIV/AIDS. . . Recommended. First-year undergraduate students and laypersons." - Choice
"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
