Synopsis: Does the scientific "theory" that HIV came to North America from Haiti stem from underlying attitudes of racism and ethnocentrism in the United States rather than from hard evidence? Anthropologist-physician Paul Farmer answers in the affirmative with this, the first full-length ethnographic study of AIDS in a poor society.

From the Inside Flap: Praise for the first edition:

“Farmer?s sensitive exploration of the lives and deaths of the people at [the village of] Do Kay give his study a distinctly human face and an emotional edge.... The book is at the same time fiercely personal and coldly objective. The result is both moving and illuminating.?— Science

“Farmer renders a richly layered and nuanced ethnographic portrait.?— Harvard Educational Review

“This superbly crafted volume is dedicated to explaining and refuting a popular U.S. belief that AIDS came to the United States from Haiti. . . . Farmer has made an outstanding scholarly contribution to the ‘anthropology of suffering,? the assessment of illness as perceived and experienced by a patient embedded in an interlocking fabric of culture and history.?— Medical Anthropology Quarterly
