An insider's view of the state-supported AIDS denial of South African leaders Thabo Mbeki and Manto Shabalala-Msimang, this memoir describes a great triumph of citizen activism. The account begins with the efforts of the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) to rouse public alarm over the puzzling intransigence of the government and the lack of drugs for people suffering from untreated AIDS. Finally, this book details how TAC ultimately succeeded on a much larger scale, as the group exposed corrupt doctors Matthias Rath and Zeblon Gwala and publicized the case of patient Andile Madondile, who had been deceived about his medicine.
