Once Upon a Virus: AIDS Legends and Vernacular Risk Perception
by Diane E. Goldstein
Publisher: Utah State University Press 2004
Number of pages: 228
Tracing the rich tradition of AIDS legends in relation to current scholarship on belief, Diane Goldstein shows how such stories not only articulate widespread perceptions of risk, health care, and health policy, they also influence official and scientific approaches to the disease and its management. Notions that appear in narratives of who gets AIDS, how and why, are indicators of broad issues involving health beliefs, concerns, and needs.
