Editorial Reviews

Review

"This activist's manual by Smith and Siplon -the title of which refers to an AIDS slogan-is divided into two parts: Building a Domestic AIDS Treatment Activist Movement and Forging a Global AIDS Treatment Activist Network. The book traces the progression of the global AIDS treatment activist movement, paying special attention to the organization Health GAP. It promotes disruptive activists' tactics introduced by the protest group ACT UP, an agenda greatly facilitated by the rise of the Internet and capable of empowering the disenfranchised across national boundaries by encouraging demonstrations and confrontational politics against a profit-driven global economy and antipoor global politics. Social activists will find this book an invaluable resource. For libraries serving that audience."

"Drugs Into Bodies: Global AIDS Treatment Activism</i> is a thorough and careful review of the history of AIDS activism viewed through the lens of the authors' beliefs about the socioeconomic forces and politics that have driven the activism around HIV care….Hopefully, in the end, this book will inspire readers to look beyond the moment and push for a solution to the world HIV epidemic, as well as an ongoing commitment to end the epidemic here in the United States."

Review

"The heroic struggle to get life-saving AIDS medicines to the millions who need them is a story of principle, courage and obstreperous tenacity. Drugs into BodieS≪/i> is an illuminating read, filled with lessons about the ways in which barriers to treatment can be overcome, and social justice achieved."
