About the Author

John G. Bartlett, M.D., is a professor of medicine and director of the AIDS Care Program, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Ann K. Finkbeiner is a science writer who teaches in the Johns Hopkins University Writing Seminars.


This is a revised edition of the widely praised, comprehensive handbook and reference for people living with HIV infection and their families, friends, and caregivers ( LJ 7/91). It remains an outstanding mainstream resource. Reflecting the epidemiology of the spread of HIV infection in society, this revised edition, which carries the title page imprimatur ``developed at the Johns Hopkins AIDS Clinic,'' gives more attention to HIV and women, HIV and tuberculosis, and some newer drugs and their side effects. Still, a close comparison of the texts reveals only minor changes with little compelling reason to replace editions. Libraries requiring the most current HIV/AIDS information are dependent on the serial and electronic literature in this fast and ever-changing research field.-- James Swanton, Albert Einstein Coll. of Medicine, New York

An excellent resource for a motivated patient... Written and compiled by people who have genuinely and carefully listened to their patients... An admirable achievement. AIDS Care Thoughtful and clearly written... [This] is a wonderful addition to the literature on HIV infection and will fill a very special need for many patients, their families and friends, and their providers. I recommend it highly. -- Gerald H. Friedland, M.D. Journal of the American Medical Association An excellent source of information for patients. -- Christine Jamjian Journal of Pain and Palliative Care Pharmacotherapy
