Reviews - What do customers think about A Broken Landscape: HIV & AIDS in Africa?

Bringing the Tragedy of AIDS in Africa to the Forefront of our Attention  Jul 26, 2005
While much media coverage is given to statistics about HIV and AIDS in the USA, whether that be medical data now more available to the public, films that document both the Hospice development for the dying as well as the fragile hopes of new medicines and possible vaccines for those living with HIV, or simply coverage of the entertainment industry support during AIDS Walks, Runs, and other Benefit extravaganzas, almost nothing is said about the devastation that this disease has eroded the continent of Africa.

Here in a book that is more devoted to the visual images of patients, families and villages in the shadow of AIDS than to statistical information, the truth becomes more poignant. In a series of interview monologues with some of those affected by this plague the need for world wide attention is apparent. How we can spend billions on wars and exclude the humanitarian needs of those for whom each day is a life and death crisis boggles the mind. Perhaps this informative and tender book will help. Grady Harp, July 05
A First Person Picture Book  Jul 19, 2003
This book is an illustrated compilation of brief (1-4 paragraph), first-person narratives by victims, family, and workers in the HIV/AIDS epidemic in southern Africa. There are more pages of photos than of text. Photos are well-done and powerful. The book does much to give the reader an insider's view of the AIDS tragedy and its impact at the personal and family level. It does not address the problem analytically at all; you'll need other books for that. This one is like sitting in the waiting room of the HIV clinic, or on the floor of the hut, and talking to the people about their stories.
Mike Blyth--pediatrician in Nigeria
A Broken Landscape  Dec 14, 2002
An indepth insight into HIV and AIDS in Africa and done in a way which highlights the positive responses and challenges perceptions of this terrible epedemic . This book is a must for anyone interested in learning more about this subject.
