Why are millions of sub-Saharan Africans dying of AIDS-related complications when antiretroviral treatment is readily available? We’ll spend this hour with South African journalist Jonny Steinberg. His new book about the crisis is “Sizwe’s Test: A Young Man’s Journey through Africa’s AIDS Epidemic” (Simon and Schuster, 2008).
Just how much do different generations differ? Jean Twenge, associate professor of psychology at San Diego State University, addresses these issues in her recent book “Generation Me: Why Today’s Young Americans Are More Confident, Assertive, Entitled – and More Miserable Than Ever Before” (Free Press, Paperback, 2007). She’ll be our guest this hour.
