"The best empirical piece of work on the AIDS epidemic that I have read—detailed, well-informed, and expressed in lucid and accessible prose."—Charles E. Rosenberg, University of Pennsylvania

"This study surpasses all the best current writing in the AIDS field and bids fair, in my opinion, to set the standard for some time to come—not only in relation to the policy problems and the scientific and political conflicts associated with AIDS but also in the academic arenas of sociology of science, sociology of knowledge, and sociological theory."—Virginia Olesen, University of California, San Francisco

New York Times Book Review - Jeffrey Goldberg

A perceptive and useful analysis of this revolution in the democratization of medicine. . . .[Epstein's] sobriety is his strength; the absence of gringing axes is reassuring, especiallyf or the general reader.
