Although the first AIDS cases were attributed to men having sex with men, over 70% of HIV infections worldwide are now estimated to occur through sex between women and men. In Men at Risk, Shari L. Dworkin argues that the centrality of heterosexual relationship dynamics to the transmission of HIV means that both women and men need to be taken into account in gender-specific HIV/AIDS prevention interventions. She looks at the "e;costs of masculinity"e; that shape men's HIV risks, such as their initiation of sex and their increased status from sex with multiple partners. Engaging with the common paradigm in HIV research that portrays only women-and not heterosexually active men-as being "e;vulnerable"e; to HIV, Dworkin examines the gaps in public health knowledge that result in substandard treatment for HIV transmission and infection among heterosexual men both domestically and globally. She examines a vast array of structural factors that shape men's HIV transmission risks and also focuses on a relatively new category of global health programs with men known as "e;gender-transformative"e; that seeks to move men in the direction of gender equality in the name of improved health. Dworkin makes suggestions for the next generation of gender-transformative health interventions by calling for masculinities-based and structurally driven HIV prevention programming. Thoroughly researched and theoretically grounded, Men at Risk presents a unique approach to HIV prevention at the intersection of sociological and public health research.

"A timely and evocativecontribution to the growing literature globally on masculinity and HIVprevention. With a focus firmly onheterosexual men's practices and experiences, Men at Risk fills a major gap.A `must read' for scholars of gender and sexuality in relation to HIV,and a valuable resource to inspire policy makers and program developers."-Peter Aggleton,author of Education, Vulnerability, and HIV/AIDS "Men at Risk offers an incisive critique of several decades of HIVprevention programming that has largely rendered heterosexually-active meninvisible to public health knowledge and practice.It wrestles candidly with the manyconceptual, methodological, and political dilemmas of feminist work on masculinities.But, it also points to important successesand opportunities in gender-transformative and intersectional work with men andboys. Dworkin's account of this terrain is thoroughgoing and expert, but alsoforceful and politically clear-eyed."-Christopher J.

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
