Viewing AIDS as less a disease than an industry, Burkett critiques the roles of scientists, physicians, politicians, gay . The viewer cannot simply glance at these images, but instead will embed them in the mind for gradual decoding of the mysteries that they convey. Grady Harp, October 10.

Viewing AIDS as less a disease than an industry, Burkett critiques the roles of scientists, physicians, politicians, gay activists, fundamentalists, pharmaceutical companies, and media figures as they jump on the AIDS bandwagon for personal and political advancement.

We have to be dragged, screaming and kicking to the reality of genocide. Time and again the civilized world has turned its back as genocide occurs. Every soul on this planet should read this book, and never forget these awful events. There are always many reasons America did not act or waited to act, and I feel like other global considerations as well as what was happening stateside was not considered. Legitimately, often times we had military deployed and engaged in different parts of the world where there was genocides happening (Iraq and the Kurds) and when we lost men because we had military on the ground (Somalia).

A combination social history and an indictment that offers the claim that "AIDS never got to be simply a disease" provides a look at the key players in the AIDS epidemic, such as Kimberly Bergalis, Dr. Robert Gallo, Pedro Zamora, and ACT UP, among others. Reprint.

Great educational tool for my students at University of Central Florida in Orlando., , class HSC3593 - HIV Disease: A Human Concern.

Imagine if a book took the very important stance of "what if instead of the Reagan era conservatives treating the AIDS crisis as a plague to wipe out the gays the real bad people of the AIDS crisis were the gays themselves."

Great book especially in these times of scary-ass deadly disease must read how not to handle a man made disaster.

The Gravest Show on earth is in a long line of books denouncing the AIDS/HIV connection, if read in that way. It is highly entertaining, informative, stylish, and unfortunately very necessary Ten Years after being published.

Interesting that no one has yet reviewed this book, which goes to say that, again unfortunately, hardly anyone still knows.

Read it for the laughter, read it for the cheer.

Judgment day commeth, and although it might not commeth right soon, when and if it does...The earth will shake, not only for ROBERT GALLO and Co., but for every iota of American hubris that abounds.

This is a masterwork of investigative journalism.
