The AIDS Cult
Essays on the Gay Health Crisis

Edited by: John Lauritsen and Ian Young
Asklepios
223 pages
CA$15 + S&H

What really causes AIDS? A virus from Africa? Or our own neglect – or worse – of whole categories of our population?

The essays in The AIDS Cult show how a number of different beliefs, group interests and social forces conspire to make us "sick."

With varied backgrounds and different vantage points, the eight contributors offer a fresh, radical view of our society's health crisis, as manifested in the gay community. They challenge us to reexamine our assumptions about AIDS and terminate the mass sacrificial ritual we have been enacting.

Essays include therapist and psychohistorian Casper Schmidt's "The Group-Fantasy Origins of AIDS," "Programmed to Die: Cultural Hypnosis and AIDS" by hypnotherapist Michael Ellner and Andrew Cort, "Long Time Survival" by AIDS activist Michael Callen and "Thinking Positive: The AIDS Cult and Its Seroconverts" by Ian Young.
