Endangered Relations by Chris Lyttleton $23.00

Endangered Relations: Negotiating Sex and Aids in Thailand by Chris Lyttleton

Endangered Relations: Negotiating Sex and Aids in Thailand 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-honoured understandings of fate and misfortune, disease and contagion, gender and pollution. Endangered Relations describes how over the past ten years public health manoeuvres 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.

"Endangered Relations is a brilliant study of the social and cultural forces shaping the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Thailand. Chris Lyttleton effectively integrates ethnographically-grounded cultural analysis with a detailed consideration of the social, political and economic processes that have impacted upon the epidemic. The result is a groundbreaking book that will change the way we think about HIV and AIDS not only in Thailand, but in the world system more generally." Richard Parker, Columbia University

"...One of the most thorough anthropological explorations and interpretations of responses to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Thailand at both the individual and collective levels." Bencha Yoddumnern-Attig, Mahidol University

Chris Lyttleton lectures in Anthropology at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. He has worked as a consultant in HIV/AIDS programs in Thailand, Laos and Burma.
