    Review quote
    "A unique and important book. It is accessible, innovative and far-sighted. This is the most important recent book to understand the longterm consequences of AIDS in Africa."--Peter Piot, Executive Director UNAIDS "Literally dozens of potential research questions emerge from almost every chapter. This book ought to be at the side of any social scientist wanting to conduct systematic work on HIV/AIDS."--Dr Robert Mattes, Associate Professor, Political Studies, University of Cape Town, "Journal of South African Studies" "The foundation text for postgraduate courses on AIDS and development, AIDS and politics and so on... the best reference book for those who are - or should be - grappling with the implications of AIDS in development planning, business and public affairs."--Alex de Waal, "London Review of Books" "The single best introduction to the global pandemic and its consequences. It is clear, thorough, and authoritative. ...this is a must-read for policy-makers, scientists, and the general public."--Craig Calhoun, President, Social Science Research Council "A powerful book which needs to be read by all senior African politicians and policy makers. It is honest about the scale of the pandemic and the problems we face in addressing it but there is a real message of hope. We can beat this disease."--KY Amoako, Executive Secretary, Economic Commission for Africa "The book presents important ideas and presents eloquently and thoroughly the arguments of emerging thinking around the impact of the disease on society."-- "African Security Review" "This is an outstandingly written book with a wealth of information that makes it priority reading for policy makers, students, and anyone who is concerned about or studying the relationship between poverty, inequality, and infectious diseases. A highly recommended book for all libraries."--H.Robert Malinowsky, "AIDS Book Review Journal" "This book should be read by every businessma
