Portada
Taurus Publications, 2003 - 176 páginas
El cancer y el SIDA, como antano ocurria con la tuberculosis, son enfermedades consideradas misteriosas. En torno a ellas los prejuicios, las fobias y los miedos han tejido una red de complicadas metaforas que dificultan su comprension y, a veces, su cura. Este volumen resulta imprescindible para entender esas fantasias punitivas creadas alrededor de dos males tipicos de nuestra era.
