Iwanami Shoten, Tokyo. 1986, xi, 162 p; very good in wraps. Text in Japanese. Iwanami gendai sensho series, no. NS 550. Introduces the nature of the AIDS virus, discusses its spread; notes various forms of AIDS; chapter on encounters with AIDS patients; describes scene at an AIDS clinic in San Francisco, conversation between the gay men and drug users there; chapter on AIDS in Japan; chapter speculating what will happen in the future with AIDS; development of AIDS treatment. Unclear who the author actually is, from internal evidence it seems he is infectious disease specialist; but can't find anything about him; perhaps it is a penname. From dedication it seems he was in the US for many years; he frames the text as the experiences of a physician named Kitamura Tsuneo who visits US in 1984 and interacts with physicians and HIV+ people there
