The FDA follies by Herbert Burkholz( Book )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 700 libraries worldwide
The FDA Follies is a fascinating saga, revealing in full for the first time: how a few generic drug manufacturers bribed FDA reviewers into getting their products to the marketplace early, how a determined band of AIDS activists took on the FDA and forever changed the way our drugs are approved and marketed, how the FDA and the blood bank industry let precious years slip by while the nation's blood supply was contaminated with the HIV virus, how the agency approved faulty heart valves that killed and silicone breast implants that flattered women while maiming them, and how those famous killer grapes from Chile were actually poisoned in the FDA's own laboratories. The book concludes with an analysis of how a reformed agency under new and active leadership in the 1990s is struggling to retrieve its credibility and authority and become once again the proper guardian of the national health

Spy: the story of modern espionage by Clifford Irving( Book )
2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
No one living in the modern world can escape the impact of espionage. Through "illegal" agents who operate with no official protection, the espionage organizations of major powers--Washington's CIA, Moscow's KGB and London's MI6--conduct a silent, invisible search for secret information about the political and military activities and plans of other countries. Clifford Irving and Herbert Burkholz explain how these agents are chosen and trained, describe the dangerous and lonely lives spies lead in a world where success earns no recognition and the price of failure is usually death. The authors discuss the activities of Richard Sorge in Japan before and during World War II, the atom spy rings of the 1940s in England and the United States, Oleg Penkovskiy, Rudolf Abel, Kim Philby, the U-2 affair, the seizure of the U.S.S. Pueblo, and much more. This is a fascinating history of the moments of excitement and high adventure and the months and years of harrowing tedium, revealing the truth about spying in the 29th century.--Adapted from book jacket
