Shufu no Tomosha, Tokyo. 1987, 191p., very good paperback in wraps. Text in Japanese. Shiokawa was chair of the Ministry of Health's special task force on AIDS. The book provides basic information at a time when dozens of AIDS cases had been reported in Japan. It describes the transmission routes in Japan and US; the world AIDS situation; high risk groups; how to prevent aids; safe sex; testing; treatment; and a section on AIDS in Japan. A large illustrated section presents info on the immune system and AIDS; discussion of human rights of AIDS carriers; how ignorance and prejudice create discrimination; kids with HIV who can't go to school. Last third is a Q&A section. Ends with list of consultation locations and testing services. Illustrated with B&W cartoons summing up key points of advice - e.g. one with a man walking by and showing no interest in injectable drugs, a call girl, and a homosexual liaison, with the caption "The wise man does not court disaster" (from the Confucian classics)
