Summary
Updated throughout with the latest findings on the AIDS virus, the Seventh Edition provides readers with the most current information available on the biology of the virus and the impact it has on society. The Seventh Edition of this text provides readers with a solid overview of AIDS from both a biomedical and a psychosocial perspective. The authors cover the molecular and cellular aspects of the virus and the immune system's response to it, and examine epidemiology and its role in understanding HIV and AIDS. The use of understandable vocabulary and clear illustrations, along with updated biomedical data and the most current statistics on AIDS available, makes AIDS: Science and Society an engaging resource for students, researchers, and general readers
