Iwanami Shoten, Tokyo. 1993, xii, 128p., text in Japanese, illustrated with color photos, very good first edition in boards and unclipped dj, wraparound band intact. The author, a hemophiliac who contracted AIDS through contaminated blood, uses his real name and discusses his fight against the disease, working on behalf of the 2000 HIV+ hemophiliacs (out of 5000 total hemophiliacs). The book critiques the role of the media in stoking fear of AIDS and argues that prejudice against HIV+ individuals will only cause AIDS to spread more. Contains several of the author's color photographs.
