    ITEM#: 10713819

    RANDY SHILTS was one of the first journalists to recognize AIDS as an important national issue and, in the early 1980s, he began to report on AIDS full time for theSan Francisco Chronicle, making him the only journalist to do so. He was also the author ofThe Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk and Conduct Unbecoming: Gay and Lesbians in the U.S. Military.Shilts died of AIDS-related complications in early 1994.

    Upon it's first publication twenty years ago, And The Band Played on was quickly recognized as a masterpiece of investigatve reporting. An international bestseller, a nominee for the National Book Critics Circle Award, and made into a critically acclaimed movie, Shilts' expose revealed why AIDS was allowed to spread unchecked during the early 80's while the most trusted institutions ignored or denied the threat. One of the few true modern classics, it changed and framed how AIDS was discussed in the following years. Now republished in a special 20th Anniversary edition, And the Band Played On remains one of the essential books of our time.

      Verified Purchase

      At over 600 pages not counting the notes on sources and index, this book may at first seem a daunting task to read. But almost from the start, you are drawn in and captivated as you watch an epidemic begin to take hold on our nation-at first seemingly gradually but then faster and more rampant than anyone (except a select few who were ignored) could have imagined!
