Summary It offers a history of AIDS in this country and presents important and interesting research into the disease and into areas of social life that have previously been obscured by myth, taboo and legal prohibition. Contributors discuss the epidemic from the perspective of the groups involved, and outline the unique response of the New Zealand government and the public - a panic-free response characterised by early mobilisation, a preventive approach, and substantial involvement of the gay community
