Publication language


This book explores the interplay between the (informativeness of) prevention messages individuals receive about AIDS at the public level and the (informativeness of) messages they exchange at the interpersonal level. It particularly aims at presenting a theoretical and conceptual basis for understanding the pragmatic concerns linked to the AIDS crisis in the United States and other parts of the world. This book is the first to systematically investigate how theory enlightens our comprehension of AIDS and communication processes.
