"The 100-page report, 'A survey conducted for the Book of Alternative Services Evaluation Commission', is available from the Anglican Book Centre for $8.99. The Commission had earlier published 'Thinking about The Book of Alternative Services: A Discussion Primer' (also available from ABC at $8.99). Its focus is a theological evaluation of the BAS. 'This survey of the use and attitudes to the BAS by a variety of Anglicans is one of the ways in which the Evaluation Commission is fulfilling its mandate to consult with the Church', said John Webster, acting chair. 'The detailed results will be a significant factor in drawing up our report and recommendations to the 1995 General Synod'." [Text of entire article.]
"Eighty percent of AIDS patients are working-age adults between twenty and forty-nine years of age, yet more than seven years into the worst epidemic this country has ever faced, fewer than ten percent of American businesses have developed policies to deal with the presence of AIDS in the workplace. .... This book offers a comprehensive approach to managing AIDS in the workplace -- its impact on health benefits, insurance coverage, employee assistance, and public relations. Throughout Puckett and Emery stress two key points: define the needs of the organization in advance of an AIDS crisis on the job, and treat AIDS like any other life-threatening condition". -- front dust jacket blurb.
