Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0943742102, Paperback)

This is the first book to deal comprehensively with the real reasons gay men are becoming sick in ways that are called AIDS. The editors, John Lauritsen and Ian Young, and the other six contributors to The AIDS Cult examine psychological and cultural issues the ways religious intolerance, group fantasies, toxic rugs, pharmaceutical propaganda, deadly counselling, and a Cult of Doom have acted together to destroy the health of gay men. In his Introduction Ian Young writes: The orthodox view of our protracted health crisis as a highly infectious contagion from without has been found wanting.... we must seek the causes of this and other medical dilemmas in our own society, our own assumptions, our group-fantasies, our regimens, our recreations, and our rituals.
