In Australian Historical Studies, Vol 44, Issue 1, April 2013, Clive Moore, of the University of Queensland, reviews Jennifer Power’s book Movement, Knowledge, Emotion: Gay Activism and HIV/AIDS in Australia.
Moore praises Power’s coverage of “the crucial 1980s and 1990s”, adding “The book will be useful for any community group that is attempting to assert its role in public health.”
Moore writes: “Power uses a range of print and interview sources to create a valuable reminder to Australians of the changes that HIV/AIDS has brought, not only to lives but to the ‘ownership’ of disease management. Published almost a decade after Sendziuk’s Learning to Trust, Power’s Movement, Knowledge, Emotion has a different emphasis and does not attempt to deal much with the last twenty years. This more recent period still needs to be covered, to carry the HIV/AIDS story through to the present. Like maintaining the gay movement itself, vigilance is necessary to ensure that once the basics have been achieved, the cause does not get forgotten.”
