In this important book, Nattrass...deftly examines widespread misconceptions about the origin, transmission, and health effects of AIDS.

(Publishers Weekly)

A remarkably well argued case against unscientific approaches to AIDS and a brilliant defense of evidence-based medicine.

(Library Journal (starred review))

The AIDS Conspiracy is essential reading for anyone who is curious about why some people will not accept scientific facts about the nature, origin and lethality of HIV.

(Robin A. Weiss Nature)

a highly accessible, impeccably referenced, scholarly work, which should be essential reading for anyone wanting to understand the role of conspiracy theories in the social and political history of the AIDS epidemic.

(Neil Bennet Lancet)

Nattrass lucidly examines the social and scientific stresses that confound the public when confronted with pseudoscientifc propaganda in life-threatening scenarios. Highly recommended.



Nicoli Nattrass does a wonderful job uncovering the dangerous consequences of following fringe ideas in health and medicine. Her new book puts medical myths and misinformation square in front of us, and she tells the story with such passion, we dare not look away.
