About this book

Anti-Black Racism and the AIDS Epidemic: State Intimacies argues that racial disparities in HIV rates reflect the organization of racialized poverty and structural violence. Challenging the popular perception of HIV, black vulnerability to HIV in the US is shown to be created by the violent intimacy of the state.

Reviews

"Antiblack Racism and the AIDS Epidemic brings into view the overwhelming racial violence of the state, including the production of structural vulnerability at the level of population. Geary's work not only enables better thinking and more adequate analysis, but also, one hopes, more effective politics."- Jared Sexton, Director of African American Studies, University of California, Irvine, USA
