Synopsis: AIDS, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, is the infectious disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV attacks the immune system, sometimes with fatal consequences. Though the first reported case was only in 1959, an estimated 40 million people now live with AIDS or HIV. This valuable book discusses the history of this previously unknown disease, what scientists discovered about its transmission, and the current treatments and vaccines used to battle it. Relevant photographs and quotes from those in the field are among the highlights, as well as a focus on the critical impact of education and healthy lifestyle choices.

From School Library Journal: Gr 6-9-Some of public medicine's greatest triumphs as well as ongoing struggles are highlighted in these examinations of modern plagues. Historical backgrounds are sketched in, but along with describing each malady's causes and effects, the authors focus chiefly on current incidence, treatments, public awareness campaigns, and research toward cures. Except for several stomach-churning photos of victims in Fighting Smallpox, the illustrations are largely generic, less-than-informative depictions of lab scientists sporting white coats, Third World residents, and melodramatic graphic representations of viruses. Aside from Fighting Cancer-which contains alarmist generalizations about cell phone radiation, a sweeping claim that "men under the age of 30 are particularly at risk from testicular cancer," and an observation that breast removal, à la Angelina Jolie, is an effective preventive measure-these titles nonetheless make serviceable complements and updates for the equivalent titles in Rosen's 2010 series "Epidemics and Society."α(c) Copyright 2014.
