In what circumstances and on what basis, should those who transmit serious diseases to their sexual partners be criminalized? In this new book, Matthew Weait provides a critical analysis of the response of the English criminal courts to those who have been convicted of transmitting HIV during sex.
Examining cases and engaging with the socio-cultural dimensions of HIV/AIDS and sexuality, he provides readers with an important insight into the way in which the criminal constructs the concepts of harm, risk, causation, blame and responsibility.
Taking into account the socio-cultural issues surrounding HIV/AIDS and their interaction with the law, Weait has written an excellent book for postgraduate law students studying criminal law.
