    "[Genetically Modified Organisms: A Scientific-Political Dialogue on a Meaningless Meme is] presents the debate associated with introducing GMOs as a traditional debate between science and progress against dogma. After reading it, I hope that science will win for the sake of all of us."

Stalin, Mao, Communism, and their 21st-Century Aftermath in Russia and China

This book describes salient and momentous events, as well as gruesome episodes, in the history of communism under Joseph Stalin in the Soviet Union and Mao Tse-tung in China, and narrates succinctly the historic major happenings that have taken place since that time up to the 21st century, such as hostilities, espionage, and actual confrontations—occurrences that have affected relations between those two nations vis-à-vis the West and the United States. The author corrects the historic record where it needs amending given new information that has come to light, and redresses political biases that have arisen and to which none of us are immune. This book serves as a sincere warning about the evils not only of the full-blown imposition of totalitarianism via revolution, but also of the implementation of socialism and authoritarianism via evolution, asserting that full economic and political freedom is always best.

Miguel A. Faria, Jr, MD, escaped with his father from communist Cuba at age 13 and came to the United States after a three-month odyssey through several Caribbean islands. He grew up and was educated in Florida and South Carolina, where he completed his undergraduate studies, graduating magna cum laude in 1973. Dr Faria attended the Medical University of South Carolina (USA), receiving the Merck’s Manual Award for scholastic achievement and earning his MD in 1977. He performed his neurosurgical residency at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia (USA), completing his training in 1983. He practiced neurosurgery in Macon, Georgia (USA).

Presently, Dr Faria is Associate Editor-in-Chief of neuropsychiatry; history of medicine; and socioeconomics, politics, and world affairs for Surgical Neurology International (SNI), a peer-reviewed international journal for neurosurgeons and neuroscientists. He has written over 200 professional medical and public health articles and published several books.

"This is a tremendous book that should be read and re-read frequently. It will remind everyone just how fragile freedom really is—and that it is worth preserving at any cost."

Russell L. Blaylock President of Theoretical Neuroscience Research, Mississippi, USA

"Some of the original historical material Dr. Faria has researched is of great interest to both the professional historian and the self-taught student of Communism’s history, but it still remains secondary to the true purpose of this book. This is to help the reader understand what all this history means to the present geo-political landscape. In this respect, he has done an excellent job, and I’d recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand how the Bolshevik Revolution of October 1917 resulted in such monumental worldwide changes that we still deal with daily today."

Adam R. Bogart PhD Behavioural Neuroscientist, Kent State University, USA

"The research done by Faria is amazing. In Stalin, Mao, Communism, and their 21st Century Aftermath in Russia and China, the author quotes from numerous works about Russian and Chinese history. He has published more than a hundred high-quality photos of many of the players involved. He has tied together disparate parts of a massive jigsaw puzzle of events and framed them into a terrifying whole. With so much going on in secretive societies such as Russia and China, that's hard to do. Because of its historical significance, this book will find an audience."
