Read Laurie Garrett's The Lessons of HIV/AIDS about the new threats to stability and security that may emerge as the pandemic escalates.
Attention to the HIV/AIDS pandemic is often focused on the staggering death toll in Africa. However, in The Future of AIDS, Nicholas Eberstadt points out that waves of infection in Russia, India and China threaten to alter these states' economic potential and the global balance of power.
In The Politics of AIDS: Engaging Conservative Activists, Holly Burkhalter makes the case that unity is needed across political lines to develop a comprehensive approach toward prevention and treatment.
