520    This book provides a global overview of the role of the 
       community sector, examining in detail the origins and 
       activities of community organizations in Europe, the 
       Americas, Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Australia 
       and the Pacific. It also describes the impact of sexuality
       and gender on AIDS activism and AIDS organizing, as well 
       as broader cultural responses to the epidemic. It charts 
       the emergence and development of the community sector 
       response to HIV and AIDS, illustrating the factors that 
       led affected individuals and communities to organize, 
       question, challenge and redefine initial governmental 
       responses to the epidemic. It describes the contribution 
       of the community / NGO sector to global efforts to prevent
       the spread of the disease, highlighting tensions which 
       have sometimes arisen within community based organizations
       themselves: tensions between activism and service 
       provision, between altruism and self help, between 
       volunteer participation and management control, and 
       between fluidity of function and increasing 
       bureaucratization. "Power and Community" has grown out of 
       the author's intellectual and political commitment to the 
       idea that without support from strong community based 
       responses, public health systems will fail to deal with 
       the crisis of AIDS. Dennis Altman analyzes the practical 
       dilemmas which have confronted community based 
       organizations around the world, and the political 
       significance of their ability to motivate and mobilize 
       affected communities. The result is a book which should be
       a valuable resource for researchers, community 
       organizations, policy makers and activists alike
