Recommends it for: people who want to know about AIDS in Africa
Shelves: epidemiology, hiv, aids
Very solid, well researched, well referenced. The book lays the blame for the spread of HIV in Africa at the feet of colonisation and poor development efforts. I do not believe, personally, that we should absolve people so easily of responsibility for our own behaviours. But I do believe this is a useful book nonetheless. If you are interested in AIDS in Africa, you should read it.
