Sex, Drugs, and the Continuing Spread of AIDS

Clyde B. McCoy and James A. Inciardi

The book covers the nature and origins of AIDS, its social dimensions and impact on people and institutions, and alternatives for reducing the continuing spread of the disease. McCoy and Inciardi offer a breadth of perspectives on important issues from a wide array of sources--without pitting these viewpoints against each other. The chapters largely follow the chronology of the AIDS epidemic.

Written in plain English, the book's direct, illustrative style bridges the gap between scholarly literature and the literate lay reader with a tasteful synthesis of information, research, and themes in popular culture. It brings students directly to grips with the AIDS epidemic, illustrating that AIDS is not "someone else's problem." One of the book's strengths is that it not only presents material but actively helps the student make sense of it.
