Weapons of Mass Destruction: The Threat of Chemical, Biological, and Nuclear Weaponsby Tracy A. Phillips
Weapons of mass destruction, or WMDs, are capable of killing thousands of people at a time. They include nuclear bombs; "dirty bombs" that spread radioactive material; biological agents that cause illness; and chemical weapons that can injure and kill scores of people. Recent terrorist attacks have raised the public's awareness of what these weapons can do. In Weapons of Mass Destruction: The Threat of Chemical, Biological, and Nuclear Weapons, Tracy A. Phillips describes the main types of WMDs. She explains who is developing them, who might use them, and how people are working to save the world from the devastation they could cause.
