261p., very good hardcover in dj. Text in Japanese. Miyata was a reporter for the Sankei Shinbun newspaper. The book's contents are divided into two parts: the first focused on the US, the second focused on Japan. Part one discusses the fight against AIDS in New York from around 1987 and contains extensive coverage of AIDS hospice care in Boston through the early 1990s, including lengthy descriptions of "living centers," political actions, and community outreach as carried out by Fenway Center and other organizations. In Part Two, the author discusses life as HIV+ or PWA in Japan, notes the importance of counseling, and describes the battle against discrimination. The author points to the difficulties in overcoming the pattern of people either panicking in the face of AIDS or being indifferent to it. There is a substantial section devoted to AIDS activism, which includes extensive coverage of the San Francisco-based NAMES project AIDS quilt. The book contains numerous photos of AIDS outreach workers, community centers, and political actions both in the US and Japan (including a 1992 candlelight vigil in Shinjuku).
