John has followed up the original Victory Deferred with this updated and expanded edition for the 30th Anniversary Year of the first diagnosis of HIV AIDS in the USA. He shows what an excellent writer and journalist he is and always has been. Writing with passion, depth and credibility on a subject that is very personal to him and many thousands of others not only in the USA but around the world. John has spoken to medical experts and weaved their stories with the personal stories of those touched by this global epidemic virus and he doesn't shy away from controversy either. Questioning the current motives of human rights and AIDS organisations and their new found interests in marriage equality and the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell and the Defense of Marriage Act, whilst palming off the important issue of HIV AIDS to other smaller organisations almost as a side issue. Randy Shilts first brought all of this to light in his book - And The Band Played On - and when John brought out Victory Deferred it was liken to Randy's book. Now in this newly updated edition, John's book is now THE definitive book about HIV AIDS in the USA. Read it and learn and understand why HIV AIDS is more important now, than it even was 30 years ago. Congratulations John and thank you for everything you continue to do.
