This volume presents 14 contributions on the subject, divided into four sections: overviews of travel and health; tourism and health risks; sexual behavior and sun- seeking among tourists; and travel and HIV/AIDS prevention initiatives. Distributed by Books International. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
