A Neighborhood Divided: Community Resistance to an AIDS Care Facility (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues) by Jane Balin

Wanting to know how a diverse group of progressive, middle-class Americans defined community, Balin chose to do her sociology dissertation on a neighborhood in conflict over the arrival of an AIDS care facility. She saw their debates as reflecting not only concerns about infectious disease, but also the communitys anxieties regarding the political and social changes facing urban middle class communities in general. The book introduces the neighborhood and follows its struggle over the inclusion of the care facility, which occurred in 1992, nearly four years after it was supposed to have been implemented.
