Excellent overview of culture, politics, and HIV in SE Asia,
By A Customer
This review is from: War in the Blood: Sex, Politics and AIDS in Southeast Asia (Paperback)
Beyrer combines an incredible amount factual information in a very readable account of the march of HIV through SE Asia. He does best with his coverage of Thailand and Burma, the countries he knows most. He does a fine job of weaving strands of epidemiology, medicine, politics, and culture together. The book goes beyond the often one-dimensional accounts of HIV in the region and with bradth, a credible grasp of facts, and a sympathetic, personal point of view.
