520    An understanding of all aspects of sexual behaviour is 
       essential to the development of effective approaches to 
       HIV prevention. Sex, Gay Men and AIDS reports on the 
       largest empirical study of male homosexual behaviour in 
       the UK since the work of Schofield in the 1960s. It 
       contains findings from Project SIGMA - which is the major 
       British study of this kind in the AIDS field, funded by 
       the Department of Health and the Medical Research Council.
       Using both quantitative and qualitative analysis, the 
       authors have developed important new theories about 
       sexuality, which expose unhelpful stereotypes about male 
       homosexuality and challenge outdated theories and 
       assumptions about AIDS. 
520 8  Sex, Gay Men and AIDS presents the latest research on 
       knowledge of HIV, attitudes to AIDS and the uptake of 
       safer sex practices. During the research period, 
       information from over 1000 gay and bisexual men was 
       examined, and behavioural changes in response to HIV/AIDS 
       was monitored over a four year period (1987-1991). Rather 
       than translate the interviews into 'high' language, the 
       immediacy and vitality of the men's responses is retained 
       in robust 'street' vernacular. The result is a detailed 
       study of the sexual lives of gay men in England and Wales,
       against the backdrop of the HIV epidemic, which will be a 
       key reference text for many years.
