Ikeda Shoten, Tokyo. 1992, 258p., text in Japanese, very good hardcover in dj, faintly musty; The author opens by discussing how AIDS appeared after the spread of non-reproductive sexuality, free sex, and gay liberation; while this might be a coincidence, he writes, it could not but seem to be a "divine revelation" or a "counterpunch" to such decadence. While the initial reaction of most Japanese was panic, such a state could not be maintained forever; now the time has come to focus on how to handle AIDS. He begins with an overview of AIDS in Japan and around the world, briefly discussing social factors in the early outbreak of AIDS such as the "spread of homosexuality." He focuses in particular on the potential for treatment and vaccination. He devotes particular attention to the inclusion of AIDS in the Americans with Disabilities Act, and in a final section makes recommendations for AIDS policies in Japan.
