As the AIDS crisis moves into its second decade, new populations are suffering its devastating effects, and complex new social and legal issues are emerging. In this book, the directors of the AIDS Project of the ACLU have gathered nine important essays analysing the legal and social policy failures that have led to widespread discrimination against persons with HIV disease, and have presented concrete recommendations for a more just and effective AIDS policy. With an emphasis on civil rights throughout, the authors address such topics as adolescents with HIV, women with HIV, health insurance and the battle over limits on coverage, the criminalization of HIV infected persons, HIV in the workplace and the responsibilities of health care providers. The book is not only a useful and moving review of significant cases relating to HIV, AIDS, health care and civil rights, but also represents an urgent response to the government's failure to address these issues.

Written in the form of a travel diary, this is an historical examination of European racism over the past two centuries, and a study of Europe's dark history in Africa. Readers are taken on an intellectual journey into a "darkness" which the author argues is a product not of Africa, but of the deepest recesses of the European mind and its attitudes toward the "dark continent". The book sets out to place Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" in context, and to trace the legacy of the writings of European explorers and missionaries, politicians and historians, from the late-18th century onwards, in an effort to help readers to understand Conrad's disturbing line, "Exterminate all the brutes".
