This book is about sexuality, disease and culture. It tells the story of HIV/AIDS in Thailand and the social and cultural forces shaping its impact. AIDS has become an increasingly prominent symbol of modernity in Thailand, yet ways of dealing with it draw on time-honored understandings of fate and misfortune, disease and contagion, gender and pollution. Endangered Relations describes how over the past ten years public health maneuvers to control the threat of HIV infection have meshed with local understandings of identity and sexuality. It is a study of the way in which Thai social relations, in particular Thai sexualities, shape the history of AIDS in Thailand and it offers a unique perspective on the complicated ways that sexuality and disease are negotiated in cultural, political and human terms.
