"[T]he need for a clearly written, informative, and accurate encyclopedia on the topic is clear. This book fulfills that need and more, addressing not only the basics of disease, symptoms, treatment, and prevention, but also the societal, financial, and personal aspects of STDs. . . . Summing Up: Highly recommended."

Booklist

"

"While the articles are broad, their bibliographies will be of help to those looking to explore more in depth. Extensive cross references, a detailed index, and a topical guide pull together disparate entries for improved reader access. Simply written, this title will be of interest to both the general public and undergraduate students studying health care, sociology, and social work."
