Editorial Review:

Product Description:


The literature on AIDS has attempted to teach us the "facts" about this new disease or to provide a narrative account of scientific discovery and developing public health policy. But AIDS has precipitated a crisis that is not primarily medical, or even social and political; AIDS has precipitated a crisis of signification the "meaning" of AIDS is hotly contested in all of the discourses that conceptualize it and seek to respond to it . AIDS: Cultural Analysis/Cultural Activism is the first book on the subject that takes this battle over meaning as its premise.
