Citizenship, Social Capital and HIV/AIDS is among the few splendid books that present the relationship between social capital and HIV/AIDS in a more striking fashion. Unlike many other books in this area, this volume provides a robust and exhaustive analysis on the various elements of community social capital and their association with HIV/AIDS prevention in South Africa. Very few books have successfully managed to show the link between social theory and practical reality. With this book, the author has shown how theoretical ideas from Habermas, Foucault and Freire can be adapted and utilised in the discourse of HIV/AIDS prevention. What makes this book classical and canonical is its overreliance on critical anthropological narratives. The book is a significant contribution to an area which has attracted the attention of many scholars and researchers across the globe. It will remain a useful addition to public health and HIV/AIDS scholarship. Taken as a whole, the book is an excellent deployment of incisive and critical sociological imagination.
