520 1 |a "In this collection of essays, Lawrence O. Gostin, an internationally recognized scholar of AIDS law and policy, confronts the most pressing and controversial issues surrounding AIDS in America and around the world. He shows how HIV/AIDS affects the entire population - infected and uninfected - by influencing our social norms, our economy, and our country's role as a world leader." "Gostin blends his own legal scholarship with social commentary on AIDS policy, politics, and law. He gauges the national and international responses to the pandemic from its origins in 1981 through an initial phase of public denial and then a phase of intense awareness and mobilization. We are now in a third phase, he asserts, which is marked by complacency, injustice, and unfulfilled expectations."--Jacket.
