About this Item

Signed boldly by the author on the title page, not inscribed to anyone. Shilts wrote for the San Francisco Chronicle and was the author of The Mayor of Castro Street, about Harvey Milk. Recent studies seem to debunk Shilts premise that Gaetan Dugas, a flight attendant was "patient zero." Some rubbing and stains to the edges of the volume, the DJ is unclipped, very scarce signed. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 019304

About this title

Synopsis:

This investigation of the first five years of the AIDS epidemic examines the roles of the federal government, public health authorities, and research scientists in identifying the disease and acting to contain it

Review:

In the first major book on AIDS, San Francisco Chronicle reporter Randy Shilts examines the making of an epidemic. Shilts researched and reported the book exhaustively, chronicling almost day-by-day the first five years of AIDS. His work is critical of the medical and scientific communities' initial response and particularly harsh on the Reagan Administration, who he claims cut funding, ignored calls for action and deliberately misled Congress. Shilts doesn't stop there, wondering why more people in the gay community, the mass media and the country at large didn't stand up in anger more quickly. The AIDS pandemic is one of the most striking developments of the late 20th century and this is the definitive story of its beginnings.
