In this lucid and informative book, Michael Fumento explains the facts about the transmission of AIDS and exposes the tragedy of the campaign of misinformation which has surrounded this disease for decades.

Systematically debunking the myths about transmission and the travesty of the misuse of AIDS information, Michael Fumento demonstrates the harm that has come from keeping the American public from the truth about AIDS.
