Impure Science talks about how AIDS patients in the 1980s were able to transform their status from being a disease constituency to being experts in experience. AIDS activism was seen by many as being the template for patient and health groups activities. The book won the C. Wright Mills Award for the best first book published by a sociologist and the Rachel Carson Prize of the Society for Social Studies of Science.
