From Library Journal
HIV is another in a long line of diseases that have ravaged Native Americans over the centuries. Although by the end of 2001 only about 2200 Native Americans had been diagnosed with AIDS, the risk of the disease increasing among this minority group is great. Vernon (English and ethnic studies, Colorado State Univ.), who is of partly Native American descent, assesses that risk and describes the current state of HIV/AIDS in Native communities. The first comprehensive discussion of HIV/AIDS in these communities, this work covers Native Americans in both the continental United States and Alaska. Though well researched, the text is unfocused and repetitive, making it difficult to read. However, the bibliography and resource guide will be valuable to researchers on this topic. Recommended for research libraries and libraries serving Native American communities. Jeffrey Beall, Univ. of Colorado at Denver Lib.
