Reviews

"An exceptionally exciting book, AIDS and the Distribution of Crises is unlike any other collection on HIV/AIDS I have read. This volume makes critically important interventions into our past, present, and future imaginations of HIV/AIDS. It should be widely read and taught."--Jennifer Brier, author of "Infectious Ideas: U.S. Political Responses to the AIDS Crisis"
"This volume reshapes our critical orientation by insisting on a conception of the AIDS pandemic not as a rarefied historical period or a particular epidemiological tragedy but rather as a space for opening up theoretical and conceptual inquires into the violent consequences caused by the ideological deployment and dissemination of 'crisis.' A capacious and compelling rendering of the AIDS pandemic, it offers a potent dwelling space for critical reflection and a powerful provocation into thinking otherwise about AIDS and the world at large."--Martin F. Manalansan IV, author of "Global Divas: Filipino Gay Men in the Diaspora"
