Inventing AIDS

In a unique combination of personal experience and analysis, AIDS activist Cindy Patton offers a disturbing critique of the commitments of scientific knowledge as they relate to the AIDS epidemic, often conflicting with the human needs of HIV/AIDS patients. She shows how rigid scientific beliefs foster inadequate and discriminatory educational practices, and considers the effects of scientific information on the formulation of public health policies and political strategies.
