Dr. Paul Thompson bequeathed to me more published materials than I can count; not least of them is what I’ve called, the “Manna from Paul” – Guidance Framework for Testing of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes for my Chapter 2. It has been the icing on the cake. And for Dr. John McClendon III – what do you call someone who rectified your doctoral admission process; saw you through the thick and thin of the program, up until the very end – father figure? That’s what he is, and much more.
Next, my deep gratitude is also due to my big sister Mrs. Ifeyinwa Mary Agnes Ugwuoke, BA, MA, LLB, LLM. Her outpouring of ‘libations’ to God Almighty in faraway homeland (Nigeria), has had profound positive effect on my family in the New World (USA). Finally, the author would like to thank J. Everet Green, PhD., for his input on earlier drafts of this book; as well as other anonymous reviewers for their comments.
