Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Social scientists report on the past decade's AIDS-driven research into perceptions of sexual safety and risk, the factors that contribute to these, and the role of non-governmental and community-based organizations in facilitating accurate risk assessment. Reworked versions of 13 papers from conferences in York, Brighton, and Yokohama during 1994, consider such aspects as risk reduction strategies of gay men, medical teaching texts, travel and sexual behavior, socially apart youth, social relations among heroin users, love and seropositivity, and discourses of power and empowerment.
