Author discusses how his suspicion of the accepted theory that AIDS originated in Africa led him to investigate the issue, leading him to conclude that this theory was unsupported; instead, he concludes that AIDS arose from human artifice. Argues that the pathogen possibly arose from biological weapons programs at Fort Detrick, Maryland during the Vietnam era. Includes discussion of the sociological background of sexual cultures in California (LA and SF), discussion of some early AIDS patients in Japan, and theories of how HIV and other viruses were transmitted to Japan.
