Chazan gives a nuanced analysis of local politics in a globalized setting. She effectively pulls together connections among women and community as she fills the pages with stories of grief, endurance, resistance, and achievement – in short, what it is to live within the HIV/AIDS epidemic.” Pamela Moss, University of Victoria
