'This book is an extraordinary achievement. It includes a careful study of the political economy of HIV/AIDS and a clear explanation of the economic policies associated with neoliberalism and the IMF.'
Alfredo Saad Filho, School of Oriental and African Studies
'For far too long, public health activists have allowed development discussions to be dominated by economists.
'An inspiring tale of how informed and dedicated activism can make a crucial difference to the lives of the least priveleged.'

'Rowden’s masterful work provides health advocates with the information, arguments and motivation they need to win the battle against policies that, quite literally, kill.'
Ilene Grabel, Josef Korbel, University of Denver
'Occasionally, a book comes along that gives you a slap; a book that says 'you used to care, but you've gotten lazy: WAKE UP!' Rick Rowden's book is one of those books – a passionate, irresistible critique of neoliberal economics that enrages and educates in equal measure.'
Andrew Harmer, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
'Extensively researched and well written ... should be read by all who are interested in global health and in HIV/AIDS'
