Booknews
International experts compare the findings from 16 key surveys on sexual behavior and partner relations conducted in the late 1980s and early 1990s in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Central and South America. They provide a picture of variation across gender, age groups, and population groups in sections on AIDS knowledge, condom awareness and use, sexual behavior, risk perception, and risk factors. Includes chapters on study methodology and data analysis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
