Reviews

“This book compares how China and India, the two most populous countries in the world, respond to the HIV/AIDS disease domestically by framing it as a national security threat. … the book is recommended for those looking for a detailed description of how the two Asian giants have responded to HIV/AIDS to date.” (Lai-Ha Chan, The China Journal, Vol. 77, January, 2017)


"This ambitious book sets out to add to our theoretical understanding of the securitization process while also providing a significant contribution to the realm of the HIV/AIDS epidemic literature. The project brings together domestic and international dimensions of the securitization issue into an explanation of the policy process in both China and India. This is a strongly recommended reading in upper division and graduate level courses on HIV/AIDS and global health." Robert L. Ostergard, Jr., University of Nevada, Reno, USA
