Praise for Punishing Disease

“A thoroughly researched, detailed account of how the promotion of a model of individual responsibility for a fatal disease such as HIV serves to transform a medical problem into a criminal problem… Recommended.”Choice

“A wake-up call about the dangers of punitive approaches to stopping the spread of disease.”—Steven Epstein, author of Impure Science and Inclusion

“This important book should be read not only by those who are interested in America’s response to HIV but also by everyone who cares about public health policy.”—Wendy E. Parmet, Northeastern University
