Much has been written on the medical aspects of the AIDS pandemic, yet relatively little it seems on the social and cultural impacts of the disease on gays and lesbians in America. Out of a California conference in late 1992 that dealt with these issues came this volume. Written mostly by professors of sociology and psychology from U.S. universities, these essays cover topics such as the impact of AIDS on familial and personal relationships within the gay community, the reintegration of spiritual concerns among gay ethnic populations, and the simultaneous demonization and mainstreaming of homosexuality as a political issue. Fascinating, if academic, reading on a topic that has been significantly under-reported, this collection is recommended for larger public, academic, and special collections.?Jeffery Ingram, Newport P.L., Ore.
