And the Band Played on
And the Band Played on Politics, People, and the Aids Epidemic By Shilts, Randy Book - 2007

Written 30 years ago, this is still the quintessential book regarding the origin of the AIDS epidemic in America. Shilts lambasts the CDC, the Reagan administration, the homophobia of Americans, and (at times) the gay community itself for not taking the warning signs of this epidemic seriously enough in the beginning. It is, of course, a heartbreaking read at times, but also incredibly informative from a scientific and political point of view. I highly recommend.
