Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, Network Spring/Summer 2002: Self-sacrificing mothers and forgiving wives, caretaking lesbians, and vigilant maternal surrogates – these "good women" are all familiar figures in the visual and print culture relating to AIDS. The author describes how texts on AIDS reproduce this historically entrenched paradigm of sacrifice and care that reinforces biases about race and sexuality. While caretaking is a fundamental human obligation, the book demonstrates how it currently falls primarily to those members of society with the least power.
