Overview

AIDS is not simply a concern for scientists, doctors and medical researchers; it has important social dimensions too. These include cultural, individual and media responses to HIV/AIDS, stigmatization and discrimination, perceptions of risk, and issues to do with counselling, care and health promotion. This new series of books brings together work from many disciplines including psychology, sociology, cultural and media studies, anthropology, education and history. Many of the titles offer insight into contemporary research priorities and identify some of the opportunities open to those involved in care and health promotion. The series will be of interest to the general reader, those involved in education and social research, as well as scientific and medical researchers who want to examine the social aspects of AIDS.

Booknews
Most of the contributions were first presented at the 6th Conference on Social Aspects of AIDS in 1992, in London (most of the contributors are British). Fifteen papers address such issues as young men and safer heterosexual sex; characteristics and sources of casual sexual partners among gay and bisexual men; the use of indigenous interviewers to access hidden populations; responses to drug use; and anthropology and the culture of HIV/AIDS voluntary organizations.
