    First Published in 1989. In November 1987, the second U K Conference on Social Aspects of AIDS took place at the Polytechnic of the South Bank in London. This brought together a wide range of researchers with an interest in examining the social dimensions of HIV infection and AIDS. Amongst those present were educationalists, psychologists, sociologists and anthropologists, as well as representatives from statutory and voluntary sector organizations providing services for those affected by AIDS. This book contains many of the papers given at the conference as well as a number of additional contributions.
