    Thanks for the excerpt from your important new book (Post 2/27/). Just one note. Unfortunately Ivory is not at all quaint, as a massive slaughter of elephants in Africa over the last 18-24 months proves. The Asian connection for Ivory and the lack of anti-poaching enforcement in key countries has revived the trade big time.

    Dear Professor Halperin,

    I just read an article about your new book, Tinderbox, and I am very interested in your research. A little background about myself: I am just starting my first year in the Health Behavior department at UNC Gillings School of Public Health after working for the past 3 years at a San Francisco non profit, called Shanti Project. I’ve been researching and working in the HIV field since being an undergrad at Occidental College in Los Angeles, including an internship at an AIDS organization while studying abroad in Dakar, Senegal. Specifically, I am interested in peer support and the biopsychosocial model.

    If you are on campus this semester, I would love to meet with you. I’m interested in learning more about your career and research and get some advice on moving forward in my own career, if you’re willing.

    Thanks very much,

    Ariana Katz

    Hello Dr. Halperin,
    My name is Treva Gear and I am a biology teacher at Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Georgia. I am very impressed with the topics covered in Tinderbox. I was staying at the Hyatt Place (Peachtree Street) in Atlanta, Georgia on the evening of September 12th for a conference when I first found out about your book. When purchasing tea and muffins in the lobby area I overheard your conversation stating that you had written the book that you were holding.

    I did not want to intrude so out of curiosity I searched for the book on Amazon when I returned to my find out that it is about the AIDS epidemic. As a biology teacher, I was immediately interested in this book. I would enjoy sharing this information with my students due to many misconceptions about the origination of AIDs. How can I get an autographed copy of your book?

    Dear Prof. Halperin,
    I am concluding a review article on the HIV epidemic in Zimbabwe over the past three decades, in which I made reference to your findings in: Halperin, D.T., Mugurungi, O., Hallett, T.B., Muchini, B., Campbell, B., Magure, T., Benedikt, C., Gregson, S. (2011) A surprising prevention success: why did the HIV epidemic decline in Zimbabwe? PLoS Med.;8(2):e1000414. To demonstrate the trends in HIV prevalence and incidence, I made reference to your Figure 1. Summary of epidemiological findings.
    (A) Estimated trends in HIV prevalence, incidence, and AIDS deaths using a mathematical model of HIV transmission fitted. I would like to include your graph as a key reference for the estimated changes in prevalence and incidence. I am requesting for permission to use the said graph.
    Kind regards,
