In the early 1980s the body of evidence for a virus of epidemic proportions was becoming irrefutable. The hunt for its cause was on and brought with it a race against time to identify the virus. In this autobiographical tale of that search, Luc Montagnier, relates the Institut Pasteur's role in investigating the AIDS virus and his group's success in identifying it before the National Health team. Filled with insights into controversies that arose over the questions of who discovered what, and when - a subject that generated almost as much new coverage as the disease itself - the book also conveys the scientific aspects of the disease and its devastating course throughout the world. Dr Montagnier's provides a commentary on critical subjects such as the possibilities for a vaccine, the current therapies available to AIDS patients and prospects for winning the battle against this virus.
