Summary
    HIV/AIDS Pandemic: Origins, Science, and Global Impact provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the AIDS epidemic through readings from diverse, interdisciplinary sources. The relevant biology is clearly explained, from the immune system to virology, as well as HIV testing, disease progression, vaccines, therapies, and recent developments in the field. The scientific topics expand further into public health with articles on epidemiology, transmission, and prevention.

    The book also engages readers with compelling personal accounts of the AIDS epidemic, invites them to wrestle with economic quandaries, and encourages them to reflect on history. Real-world connections range from the profoundly human, in an article on the role of sexual violence in propagating HIV, to the surreal, in accounts of the insidious phenomenon of HIV denialism.

    HIV/AIDS Pandemic can be used in both lower and upper division biology courses, and the material is accessible to non-biology majors as well. In addition, the book is an excellent supplement for courses on public health issues.

    Cindy Gustafson-Brown received her Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego, where she is a continuing lecturer in biological sciences. She has taught the popular course AIDS – Science and Society to upper division biology majors and lower division non-majors since 2003. Dr. Gustafson-Brown’s research background is in developmental genetics and cancer biology, and her course offerings include introductory biology, molecular biology, microbiology, cancer biology, and cell biology, as well as laboratory courses in genetics, recombinant DNA, biochemistry, and microbiology.
