Review
"As Goliszek writes in this excellent book, people throughout history have used their fellow human beings for experimentation, and most often in the name of military or financial domination....Goliszek is a riveting storyteller....In an era when "weapons of mass destruction" is a buzz word, this is a must read."
--Publishers Weekly (Starred review)

Full Description
           A documentary frequently airs on Discovery Channel about some of the ways the US government secretly experimented on its citizens in the 20th century: injecting people with plutonium to watch how they die, dropping chemical weapons on elementary schools in Minnesota and in major cities like San Francisco and New York, to watch how it spread. It is horrifying and riveting.  Now, one of the nation’s leading experts on the subject,who has devoted years to researching the subject, will write the definitive book.
           This book
offers a look at the dark side of history, a history which few people know. For thousands of years, mankind, in one way or another, has been engaged in research involving human subjects. From Japanese plans to attack America with planes full of plague-infected fleas to the Nazi war camps to CIA-sponsored mind-control programs and radiation exposure experiments, this book introduces readers to the terrifying world of biowarfare, genetic engineering, ethnic weapons, secret cancer virus programs, and AIDS research. Replete with over a thousand references, it will be the first and definitive book on the subject. The best way to ensure that history is not repeated is to disclose the truth and learn from the past. This book will do just that.

About the Author:
           Andrew Goliszek, M.S., Ph.D. is also author of two stress books, a stress management workshop kit, a medical school guide, and two novels – one dealing with the origin of AIDS (Rivers of the Black Moon: TOR Books), the other with biological warfare and genetic engineering (World Order: Forge Books), which have been translated into eleven languages. While doing research for his three novels (which all include details of nefarious but factual government activity), Dr. Goliszek became fascinated with the history of medical research and human experimentation. He decided to write a book on the subject with the belief that everyone has a right to the truth.
          Dr. Andrew Goliszek received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Biology and Physiology from Utah State University, then spent 3 years as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in both the department of Physiology and Pharmacology and the department of Medicine. He is currently an Associate Professor of Biology at North Carolina A&T State University where he teaches Biology, Human Physiology, and Principles of Endocrinology. During the past decade, he has received several biomedical research grants and has been involved in various NIH-sponsored research projects in the areas of neuroendocrinology and cardiovascular and stress physiology. He has also given many stress management seminars and workshops to organizations, individual groups, and major corporations.  He brings to the table a unique blend of scholarship (he is a Professor of Biology at North Carolina State University) and an engaging, commercial writing style.
