    "Drawing upon meticulous ethnographic analysis, Wyrod immerses himself in the poorest areas of Kampala Uganda, a location that has long been hailed as a major success story in reducing HIV prevalence. Part of the claims of success have been linked to the rise in women's rights and changes in masculinities and in gender relations. Directly challenging these claims, Wyrod uses rich interview data and in-depth participant observation to show how and why masculinities and gender relations have--and have not--changed over time. He bravely and incisively argues that male sexual privilege remains mostly intact in the contemporary HIV/AIDS epidemic on the ground in this locale. Readable, interesting, and highly innovative, this book is a compelling must-read for those who are interested in sociology, global health, HIV/AIDS, feminist theory, masculinities, and gender relations."--Shari Dworkin, author of Body Panic: Gender, Health, and the Selling of Fitness"Provides an astute and ethnographically rich account of how the AIDS epidemic has shaped gender and sexuality in Uganda. Wyrod is empathetic without being overly sentimental, critical without being judgmental, and reflexive without resorting to navel-gazing."--Daniel Jordan Smith, author of AIDS Doesn't Show Its Face: Inequality, Morality, and Social Change in Nigeria "AIDS and Masculinity in the African City offers compelling new insights into AIDS in Uganda--one of the world's most talked-about success stories. Anthropologists, gender scholars, and public health practitioners should read Wyrod's important account of how AIDS reshapes--but also reproduces--dominant masculinities." --Mark Hunter, author of Love in the Time of AIDS: Inequality, Gender, and Rights in South Africa
