A Scientific Mystery, A Massive Cover-up, and the Dark Legacy of Robert GalloBook - 2003
In this riveting, magisterial narrative, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John Crewdson shows how one of America's star bioscientists falsely claimed to have been the first to isolate the AIDS virus and then garnered the resulting honors and riches at the expense of the true discoverers in Paris; how the Reagan and Bush administrations struggled to cover up the truth; and how it all finally came out anyway, severely damaging the reputations of celebrated scientists and important government officials. Science Fictions is an arresting tale of vanity, corruption, greed, mendacity, and cutthroat competition -- an enthralling revelation of how big bioscience really works today. Book jacket.
