Why is it important?

The individual chapters in the book allow us to consider our own assumptions and rethink what we think we know about people defined as men and HIV and AIDS.


I enjoyed reading this book and the published review provides others who might be interested in reading it with an overview of the contents and strengths and weaknesses of the book.
