First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the half-title, “To Dennis — warmly, Randy M. Shults. San Francisco.” A masterpiece of investigative reporting and an international bestseller, Shilts’s expose on the spread of HIV/AIDS revealed how the epidemic was allowed to spread unchecked during the early 1980’s, with treatment hampered by government apathy, political infighting and institutional incompetence.

Octavo. Original green cloth-backed white paper boards, title to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. A little toning to board edges, an excellent copy in the slightly toned jacket.
