First edition. From the Publisher 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.
