My complete professional biography and list of publications as a scientist can be found at http://www.polymerexpert.biz/dr-bicerano
The following is additional biographical information that relates specifically to the essay that I am disseminating as a free eBook on Smashwords: "Dr. Jozef Bicerano (Ph.D., Harvard University) was raised in Turkey as a non-religious Sephardic Jew. He used to categorize his political views as those of a European-style social democrat when he lived in Turkey. He describes himself as a moderately left-leaning libertarian in the American political context. He has been a Unitarian Universalist since 1984. He is a materials scientist who has been working in industrial research and development throughout his career, first in a corporate setting and now in running his own consulting and contract research firm. While never having been a professional politician, he has always maintained a strong interest in important social and political issues."
