Epstein (sociology, UC-San Diego) shows the extent to which AIDS research has been a social and political phenomenon and how the AIDS movement has transformed biomedical research practices. He analyzes recent moves to democratize biomedicine, arguing that although AIDS activists have set the stage for new challenges to scientific authority, all social movements that seek to democratize expertise face unusual difficulties. For activists, policymakers, and general readers, as well as sociologists, physicians, and scientists. c. Book News Inc.
