Description - The Endangered Self by Gill Green
This volume focuses on how the discovery of an HIV positive status affects the individual's sense of identity, on the experience of living with HIV and its effects on the individual's social relationships. In this comparative study of the UK and US, Green and Sobo explore identity change and the stigma attached to an HIV positive status within the context of the sociology of risk. Chapters discuss issues such as: identity, social risk and AIDS; stigma; living and coping with HIV; the danger of disclosure; reported reactions in health care settings and sexual settings; and risk and reality.
