Infectious ideas : U.S. political responses to the AIDS crisis / Jennifer Brier.
- Brier, Jennifer
About this work
Viewing contemporary history from the perspective of the AIDS crisis, Brier provides rich, new understandings of the complex social and political trends of the post-1960s era. She describes how AIDS workers--in groups as disparate as the gay and lesbian press, AIDS service organizations, private philanthropies, and the State Department--influenced American politics, especially on issues such as gay and lesbian rights, reproductive health, racial justice, and health care policy, even in the face of the expansion of the New Right.
