A Comprehensive Response to Recent Publications

Section: 

I would like to thank the many readers of this site who have contacted me in the last six or seven months about the two new books purporting to explain how the AIDS pandemic began: The Origins of AIDS by Jacques Pepin, and Tinderbox by Craig Timberg and Daniel Halperin.

I have been enormously encouraged by the dozens of requests for me to make a response, and by the fact that whenever readers have added their own comments about these books, they have been sceptical ones.

With good reason, as it turns out. Read on.

Included in this posting:

1) The Air-Brushing of History. Two new books about the origins of AIDS tell it like it wasn't.

2) Review of The Origins of AIDS by Jacques Pepin. [C.U.P. 2011]

3) Review of Tinderbox by Craig Timberg and Daniel Halperin. [Penguin USA; 2012]

4) The Origins of the AIDS Pandemic. A Quick Guide to The Principal Theories and the Alleged Refutations.
