Overview

It was probably inevitable, once terms like weapons of mass destruction and dirty bomb became part of the mainstream lexicon, that a guide to their avoidance for everyday citizens would appear; and here it is. Nwanna, a former World Bank consultant, turns to public sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for information about the effects of biological, chemical, and nuclear agents that have been used as weapons in the past or are in current military use somewhere in the world. "There is no need to be alarmed," he writes, but there's not a lot that's soothing in his lengthy recitation of symptoms. Nwanna also provides guidance for what to do in case of an attack and examines the role of the government in alerting citizens should one occur. Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
