AIDS (Biographies of Disease) by Bell, Sigall K.

<p>In <i>AIDS<i>, a doctor and medical researcher explores the evolution of the HIV epidemic, contextualizing the disease from historical, social, and medical perspectives. Addressing the last 25 years, the book examines basic biological principles, including what a virus is, how the human immune system works, and how HIV impairs these functions. It presents an in-depth discussion of the HIV life cycle and explores central issues pertaining to diagnosis and treatment.</i></p> <p><i>The book also reviews global epidemiology of HIVAIDS and principles of transmission, as well as what comprises an epidemic and the factors that determine whether an infectious outbreak will propagate or die out. Finally, it looks at where HIV came from; early reactions to the disease and the social stigma it engendered; the cultural impact of HIV-positive role models; and the global economic, population, and political effects of this illness.</i></p
