Acceptable Risks: The Inspiring Story of Two Heroic Men Who Broke the Law to Save Thousands Of..

Jonathan Kwitny, Author Poseidon Press $23.5 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-73244-8
Investigative journalist Kwitny (Endless Enemies) tells the story of two gay men who fought the AIDS epidemic and changed the way the Food and Drug Administation handles experimental drugs. Jim Corti, a medical nurse for AIDS Project Los Angeles whose lover died of the disease, launched a drug-smuggling operation, making runs to Touana, Tokyo and Europe to import unapproved antiAIDS drugs and manufacture them in the U.S. He worked with Martin Delaney, a San Francisco corporate consultant who in 1985 founded Project Inform, an AIDS education group which organized a community research project to assess the effectiveness of drugs. Kwitny courageously names mendacious, meddling bureaucrats, compromised research scientists, equivocating journalists and dedicated doctors. (Oct.)
