Sex, Work, and Professionalism: Working in HIV/AIDS

Excerpt

There are many people who helped in different ways to produce this book and I am thankful to them all. The most important contributors were the HIV prevention workers I interviewed and worked with. Without their interest and involvement the production of this book would not have been possible. I found the fieldwork immensely enjoyable and hope that I have done justice to the views I collected.

Peter Aggleton played an invaluable role as a supportive and constructive editor. His advice and suggestions were not only motivating but also helped sharpen and enrich the text. Mike Savage, Angie Hart, Alan Prout and Ursula Sharma all took time to read parts of the manuscript. The book has greatly benefited from the different viewpoints they expressed. In addition, many people provided valued friendship, peer support and time to discuss ideas. The following deserve special mention: Will Anderson; Jason Annetts; Tina Bird; John Britt; Martin Calleja; Penni Charteress; Marie-Elena Costa Sa; Tom Doyle; Kevin Eisenstadt; Philip Gatter; Robin Gorna; Mike Hartley; Ford Hickson; Kea Horvers; Ben Kernighan; Jane Mezzone; David Miller; David O'Donnell; Andrew Prentice; Mark Reedman; Andrew Ridley; J. Russell; Jamie Taylor; Ian Warwick; members of the Southbank University Sexuality reading group and the trustees and workers from The LADS Project.

Finally, thanks to the Deverells and Whites for their continual support and encouragement. In particular to Alex, who helped in numerous practical and emotional ways, and, importantly, encouraged me to develop some boundaries of my own by tempting me away from writing!
