Eating Spring Rice: The Cultural Politics of AIDS in Southwest China

Sandra Teresa Hyde is Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Social
Studies of Medicine at McGill University.

"This book is a fabulous read-ethnographically rich, theoretically
engaged, and emotionally and intellectually captivating. The first
major ethnographic study of its kind, the text is very clearly
written and accessible. Hyde does a majestic job of drawing the
reader into the places and practices described, bringing to stunning
life the politics of AIDS on a border region."-Ralph Litzinger,
author of _Other Chinas: The Yao and the Politics of National

_Eating Spring Rice_ is the first major ethnographic study of
HIV/AIDS in China. Drawing on more than a decade of ethnographic
research (1995-2005), primarily in Yunnan Province, Sandra Teresa
Hyde chronicles the rise of the HIV epidemic from the years prior to
the Chinese government's acknowledgement of this public health crisis
to post-reform thinking about infectious-disease management. Hyde
combines innovative public health research with in-depth ethnography
on the ways minorities and sex workers were marked as the principle
carriers of HIV, often despite evidence to the contrary.
