Grade 9 Up-This series entry will prove invaluable to students writing reports and term papers. Little provides some historical information on STDs, with mention of famous individuals who suffered from these illnesses. She covers both the curable diseases, such as syphilis and gonorrhea, as well as AIDS. Symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, and prevention are discussed as are the social factors and consequences related to sexual behavior in the spread of STDs. Black-and-white photos, line drawings, and reproductions illustrate the text. Maps, graphs, and charts clearly support the author's assertion that STDs have reached epidemic proportions. Students will find a lot of nonjudgmental information packed into this accessible volume. The book includes a seven-page glossary, a list of U.S. and Canadian groups to contact for more information, and a good index.
