Don¿t be afraid. Be informed. Anthrax, A Practical Guide for Citizens distills the most up-to-date information in a direct, authoritative, and easy-to-use manner, and compiles useful public materials so that no family, individual, employer, public institution or medical facility will have to hunt them down. It's a must-have reference and guide for home, school, library, workplace, clinic, and media outlet, and unfortunately it could become one of the most important books you will ever own. Edited by the Parents¿ Committee for Public Awareness with an underlying message that says ¿Don¿t be afraid, be informed,¿ Anthrax, A Practical Guide for Citizens is a must-have reference and guide for home, school, library, workplace, clinic, and media outlet. It is the first book of its kind about anthrax and is, for the most part, accessible to the layperson. The book provides information current through mid-October 2001 on means of contracting anthrax, antiobiotic therapies, vaccines, and history, and also surveys other potential bioterror agents as well as providing a lively review of the history of biowarfare. It includes appendices and informational boxes from a number of official sources including the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, the Health Alert Network and the U.S. Postal Service.
