The river : a journey to the source of HIV and AIDS by Edward Hooper( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on over a decade of research, involving more than 600 interviews and analysis of more than 4,000 scientific texts, The River examines the myriad theories about the origin of the AIDS epidemic - and reaches a stunning and startling conclusion." "Since the early nineties, serious HIV researchers have been aware that the most common variant of HIV - human immunodeficiency virus - is the direct descendant of an SIV - simian immunodeficiency virus - carried by African chimpanzees." "Many doctors and scientists think the transfer was "natural," the result of human/chimp encounters - either from the keeping of chimps as pets, or from hunting and skinning chimps for food." "Others, including Edward Hooper, believe it more likely that the transfer was the result of American and European medical interventions in Africa during the 1950s - and specifically the administration of more than a million doses of an experimental oral polio vaccine, some batches of which may have been manufactured from chimp kidneys. The maps of vaccinations and early AIDS cases are extraordinarily similar."--Jacket

The river : a journey back to the source of HIV and AIDS by Edward Hooper( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It now seems certain that HIV can be traced back to retroviruses found in certain species of African apes and monkeys. But why did these simian viruses suddenly transfer to the human species? Those who believe in a natural movement across the species barrier would be hard-pressed to explain why this transfer did not occur until the late twentieth century. Do we need to look elsewhere for the true source of HIV and AIDS?" "With this question Edward Hooper begins his unprecedented investigation." "Having examined virtually every theory ever proposed to explain AIDS, Hooper became convinced that medical interventions made in Africa in the 1950s were themselves unwittingly responsible. Such a tragedy requires urgent examination."--BOOK JACKET
Knoxville by Edward Hooper( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though it began as a small fort on the Tennessee River, Knoxville would not know obscurity for long. Founded in 1791, Knoxville became the capital of the new state of Tennessee five years later and rapidly became a major metropolitan area for the southeastern United States. Exportations of raw and natural goods brought wealth and new residents, and soon its main thoroughfare became a window into the growth, development, decline, and rebirth of an all-American city. Then, as now, all roads downtown lead to Gay Street, and everything Knoxville came from it. Though Knoxville is a decidedly Southern city, it has also taken its place within the American melting pot. Swiss, English, Dutch, Irish, German, Greek, African, and Spanish families have all played major roles in the city's development. For many years, at one small popcorn stand on Gay Street stood Gary Crowder-the meticulous owner of the amazing collection of photographs predominantly featured in Images of America: Knoxville
Knoxville in the Vietnam era by Edward Hooper( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Vietnam War era (1961-1975), one of our country's most turbulent periods, was also a time of change and social evolution. Seeded in the aftermath of World War II, the nation enjoyed a remarkable economic boom. Knoxville and East Tennessee stood witness to the transformation of American society and the problems that came with the new success. From the first recognized combat casualty of the Vietnam War to the evacuation of Saigon, Knoxvillians were there, and their stories of sacrifice and service earned little mention or were forgotten in historical texts. At home, urban decay gained a grip on Knoxville's once vibrant downtown, and protests were not an uncommon sight on the evening news, but there was progress too. This volume documents the start of a new beginning for Knoxville as the city tried to hold onto its traditional Appalachian values and move into a new era"--Page 4 of cover
Knoxville's WNOX by Edward Hooper( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

WNOX was the eighth radio station to sign on the air in North America and the first in Tennessee. No station has left a bigger footprint on American popular music or the radio industry as WNOX. Its AM signal could be heard as far south as Daytona Beach and as far north as New York City in the day of uncluttered airwaves. It helped write the book on radio broadcasts and productions with programs like the Mid-Day Merry-Go-Round and the Tennessee Barn Dance. Its legendary programs helped pioneer an entire genre of American popular music and served as a launching pad for country music's greatest stars and some of the nation's best broadcasters. The call letters remain an iconic landmark of Knoxville and East Tennessee
