Summary The Encyclopedia of AIDS covers all aspects of what is now universally regarded as the "epidemic" stage of AIDS, from the first diagnoses in the early 1980's to the recent breakthroughs in treatment.
The Encyclopedia of AIDS provides extensive coverage of major topics in eight areas: basic science and epidemiology; transmission and prevention; pathology and treatment; impacted populations; policy and law; politics and activism; culture and society; and the global epidemic. Entries range from 500 to 2,000 words and include suggestions for further reading and lists of key words to use in on-line searches to update information provided in the entries.
With more than 300 entries written by 175 contributors, the world's most notable specialists in the fight against AIDS, along with more than 100 photographs, illustrations and graphs, the Encyclopedia of AIDS will soon establish itself as the definitive reference work on the history of the first two decades of AIDS.
