Overview

Biological weapons, the threat of bioterrorism, and the best ways to meet this threat to global security are the issues addressed in this book. Included are case studies of possible bioweapons incidents, including an outbreak of the plague in India and the anthrax cases in the United States. The importance of giving credit to the serious threat biological weapons present and not overlooking them in concerns of nuclear weapons of mass destruction is argued.
