This is the new, fully updated, first paperback edition of Emma Guest's acclaimed book that explores how the AIDs crisis has devastated the world's poorest continent, and shows how families, charities and governments are responding to the next wave of the crisis - millions of orphans. Based on extensive interviews, Guest lets people tell their own stories in their own words. The result is a moving and disturbing account of the experiences of orphans, street children, grandparents, aunts, foster parents, charity and social workers and foreign donors across South Africa, Zambia and Uganda.

About the Author:

Emma Guest was communications manager for the Samaritans – a helpline for the suicidal – until she moved to South Africa in 1998. Since then she has been a freelance writer on AIDS-related matters for companies, charities and the South African government. She now lives in London.

From Library Journal:

"Deadlier than war, deadlier than tyranny, deadlier than even malaria, AIDS is silently tearing Africa apart," writes Guest in the preface to this riveting account of a continental plight the world has not sufficiently considered. Guest, a freelance writer on AIDS-related matters, refrains from discussing how adults battle with and die from the disease and instead concentrates on the neglected and perhaps most helpless and vulnerable victims of the AIDS epidemic: the millions of street orphans from all over Africa, especially in such sub-Saharan countries as South Africa, Zambia, and Uganda. Often subjective and rarely conforming to the rigors of social science research, Guest's work fuses the case-study method with a flair for storytelling, attacking the real problems by drawing inspiration from the stories of real people. She also investigates the social, political, and economic forces at work in the ongoing struggle to keep the disease from spreading. This much-needed perspective is recommended for public and academic libraries. Edward K. Owusu-Ansah, Coll. of Staten Island Lib., CUNY
