Part of Wilson's "Reference Shelf" series, this slender but intense examination locates the colonial-era origins of southern Africa's contemporary health-care crisis. Thematically organized, the five chapters of previously published articles explore the status of the AIDS pandemic and the cultural obstacles that inhibit medical progress. Other chapter topics include treatment of diseases forgotten in the long shadow cast by rampant HIV-infection rates. Rich with illustrative charts and a 14-page list of source material, it is recommended for public policy, African studies, and international politics collections.
