    DescriptionThis groundbreaking book presents compelling data and research which reveals the shocking social and economic impact of HIV/AIDS on a global scale. Barnett and Whiteside--experts in the field for over 15 years--argue that it is vital to not only look at the disease in terms of prevention and treatment, but to also consider consequences which affect households, communities, companies, governments, and countries. This is a major contribution toward understanding the global public health crisis, as well as the relationship between poverty, inequality, and infectious diseases.

" -- Craig Calhoun, President, Social Science Research Council ."..the foundation text for postgraduate courses in AIDS and development, AIDS and politics, and so on."--Alex de Waal, "London Review of Books" ."..compelling, persuasive, very readable and informative."--Dr. Bill Rau, Board of Directors, Africa Policy Information Center "The text is well-written...[and] impressively clear even on complex scientific issues..."--Shula Marks, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London "This book should be read by every businessman, not only in Africa, throughout the world--because it uncovers in new and more meaningful ways the terrifying global, social and economic impact of HIV/AIDS..."--"African Business"
