Addressing young Africans' difficult questions about taboo subjects such as HIV and AIDS, premarital sex, and drug addiction, this guidebook provides a fascinating glimpse of contemporary African youth culture and the everyday collision of traditional values and the modern world. Organized in a question-and-answer style around letters of the alphabet, this work is based entirely on real questions asked by young Africans and yields many insights into the social and medical concerns of an entire generation. Five anatomical drawings convey essential facts about the human body and reproductive organs, and particular attention is paid to gender discrimination and the changing roles of women.
