Thirteen international academics and researchers contribute 13 chapters examining the politics and power of HIV/AIDS at multiple levels of human activity, from individual sexual relations to corporate boardrooms to the centers of international power in Washington, Brussels, United Nations headquarters, and beyond. Offering case studies of the local, national, and international politics of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, the text explores the depressingly slow response of governments to this public health crisis, and the related degree to which power relationships, and power disparities and imbalances in particular, have defined the problem. All royalties from sales of the book will be donated to AIDS-related organizations. Annotation 2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
