arguments that answers to the dilemma of health care reform reside on the

This book reveals the untold story of the Cuban Revolution, an eyewitness
account weaved through a boy's intrepid escape via several Caribbean islands. As Dr. Faria pounces on the purported triumphs of the
Revolution, he unravels the alleged gains, exposes the truth, and sets straight
the historic record. The picture that comes to light is that of a brutal
police state, mass repression, desolation, privation, and intolerance. (See "Special Alert")

Healthy Skepticism About National Healthcare
Jane M. Orient, M.D.
In this provocative book, a brilliant, committed physician, a leader
in medicine argues for solutions to the crisis in medicine that are bold,
thoughtful, and fundamentally opposed to those being widely touted today-including
"managed care" systems. From her perspective, there is already
too much government involvement in medicine, too much regulation, too much
insurance-which is actually prepayment in disguise. These are the root causes
of the accelerating rise in fees and costs, the neglect of patients, and
stagnation in the science of medicine itself. This book is certain to add
fresh energy to the debate over the quality and availability of medical
care in America.

Fighting Corporate Socialized Medicine
Miguel A. Faria, Jr., M.D.
In this book of essays, Dr. Faria, argues that managed care and HMOs
are not "free market" alternatives, but rather an unholy partnership
of government and corporate interests seeking monopolistic government protection
to eliminate competition while changing the ethics of medicine from a Hippocratic
ethic to a false corporate morality. Medical Warrior offers workable solutions
to restore medicine to its rightful place.

Jane M. Orient, M.D. and Linda J. Wright
Sutton's Law is a "frightening realistic novel about where managed
care might very well lead us...A mix of medicine, mystery, murder, and intrigue
with a little high finance, drugs, and romance-Sutton's Law ultimately is
about greed and simple justice."
