William B. Rubenstein, Ruth Eisenberg & Lawrence O. Gostin, The Rights of People Who are HIV Positive: The Authoritative ACLU Guide to the Rights of People Living with HIV Disease and Aids (ACLU Handbook) (S. Ill. Univ. Press 1996).

Abstract: Using the question-and-answer format common to all ACLU handbooks, this book makes clear how to take advantage of the laws designed to secure the rights of people who are HIV positive. The authors have divided the book into four sections: the disease itself and the related testing, public health, and confidentiality issues; day-to-day issues involving insurance, family law, and healthcare decision-making; discrimination in housing and work; and AIDS in prisons, schools, as a factor in immigration, and among IV drug users.
