The River: A Journey to the Source of HIV and Aids

by Edward Hooper

Little Brown And Company | June 30, 1999 | Hardcover

Not yet rated | write a review
While science has devoted much of its efforts to finding a cure for AIDS, the sources of this deadly epidemic remain largely unexamined. Distinguished science journalist Edward Hooper presents the meticulously researched, and highly readable, history of HIV and its possible origins. Pursuing leads across the U.S., the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa, Hooper pieces together the tantalizing clues offered by long-archived blood samples, early AIDS-like cases, and the medical interventions in Africa and elsewhere that may have played a role in SIVs crossover into humans. Hooper examines over two dozen theories of origin, and eventually discards most of them.

From Our Editors

HIV and AIDS have been topics of hot debate over the last 20 years. Although science devotes a lot of effort to finding a cure for AIDS, the sources of this deadly epidemic remain largely unexamined. In The River, science journalist Edward Hooper presents a thoroughly researched and readable history of HIV and its possible origins.
