Unlike most educated and trained writers, Author Liston B. Monsanto, Sr., is not a prolific writer. Other than this publication, he has written just one book, appropriately entitled, “The Extreme Test” – A book which he believes has given new meaning to the phrase “Man’s Inhumanity to Man”. Through authentic letters from the oppressed and the oppressors, “the Extreme Test”, speaks directly to the glaring faults in the Virgin Islands Government and the Bureau of Internal Revenue in particular. It also tells of the author’s defeat of the Virgin Islands Governmental System through Opinion 81-1434 of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Author, Liston B. Monsanto, Sr., is an erudite sixth generation St. Thomian who believes in putting the protestant ethic to work. Because of his passionate love for the Virgin Islands, he continues to live in St. Thomas with his wife Wilma.
