"'This book will be a major contribution by a courageous South African towards that quest for a better life for all.' - Nelson Mandela 'If truth is beauty, this relentlessly brilliant and hopeful book is beautiful. It is a text to live by, if we aspire to the possibility of a better life for all...in a world widely threatened by HIV/Aids.' - Nadine Gordimer, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, 1991 'A fascinating story from a fairly unlikely figure. There's a wealth of information here and its good to read a work that gives a specifically African response to the whole issue'- Morning Star 'In a world crying our for answers to one of history's most dreadful diseases, compassionate and articulate voices like his own are definitely worth listening to' - Morning Star 'Personal stories reveal so much more than statistics, which is why Edwin Cameron's story, which he tells with unflinching honesty in Witness to AIDS, is vitally important.' - New Internationalist 'Cameron tells the story of both his own travail and South Africa's wider plight with the kind of admirable honesty that he urges others to adopt.'- Oxford Today
