WHAT EVERYONE CAN DO TO FIGHT AIDS by Anne Garwood and Ben Melnick (Jossey-Bass/Simon & Schuster: $14; 208 pp., illustrated, paperback original). This straightforward manual for parents and teachers explains how to present the facts about HIV infection to children, adolescents and high school students: Only the most Neanderthal conservative could object to the nonjudgmental presentation. Except for a weak chapter on the history of the pandemic (the virus has been detected in tissue samples collected prior to the 1981 appearance of disease in gay men in the U.S.), this manual offers an effective starting point for family or classroom discussions.
