About this book

This book explores how the cultural process of making any disease a "plague" results in discrimination against certain groups, as it has for those with AIDS in America. Gina M. Bright here captures the discrimination produced by plague-making in her analysis and her portraits of the people she has cared for with AIDS over the past quarter-century.

About the authors

GINA M. BRIGHT is a senior oncology nurse at Virginia Oncology Associates, USA.

Reviews

"Plague-Making and the AIDS Epidemic discusses and reviews how people diagnosed with AIDS were treated physically and emotionally by health care professionals, the media, and the lay public and compares AIDS with previous plagues. The outcome for people with AIDS has changed drastically over the last 30 years - health care providers and historians alike should read Bright's book."

Barbara Owens, registered nurse and associate professor (formerly at University of Texas, San Antonio)
