Review of book published in the NYT Book Review, 11/18/1990, laid in. Fine. ISBN: 0691085528 "Dr. Grmek, the director of studies at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes at the Sorbonne in Paris and the author of "Diseases in the Ancient Greek World," admits that it is too soon to write a definitive history of AIDS but asserts that "a look back by a physician trained in historical method might be of benefit." It is. / While "History of AIDS" chronicles the brief medical and social history of the disease, Dr. Grmek is freshest and most engaging when he speculates about the prehistory of AIDS, before its seemingly sudden appearance from nowhere in 1981. He argues that while today's runaway epidemic is a new phenomenon, the viruses that cause AIDS have infected people for many decades, if not for centuries." – New York Times Book Review, 11/18/1990
