In this book Matthew Weait provides a critical analysis of the response of the English criminal courts to those who have been convicted of transmitting HIV during sex. He argues that the cases provide us with an important insight into the way in which the criminal constructs the concepts of harm, risk, causation, blame and responsibility, and - more generally - how it is impossible to understand the law in this area without also engaging with the socio-cultural dimensions of HIV/AIDS and sexuality."--BOOK JACKET." ;
