Kyodo Tsushinsha , Tokyo. 1994, 310p., text in Japanese, very good first edition in boards and unclipped dj; On the experience of the families of hemophiliacs who became HIV+. Examines the role that the Japanese Ministry of Health, pharmaceutical companies, and the medical establishment played in the iatrogenic AIDS scandal. Focuses on the families' experiences, their reactions to events unfolding in the US (anti-AIDS panic), the insensitivity of physicians in Japan, and the loss of their loved ones to AIDS. The book also contains an extensive chapter ("The ivory tower of AIDS") that makes the case for the responsibility of Abe Takeshi (and more generally ties between the medical establishment and the pharmaceutical industry) for the "homicides" of 55 individuals through iatrogenic AIDS.
