5.0 out of 5 stars A Comprehensive and Reliable Work on Biowarfare, January 25, 2000
This review is from: Biological Warfare: Modern Offense and Defense (Hardcover)
After sarin incidents caused by Aum Shinrikyo, it was also discovered that, though failed, they had developed and used biological and toxin weapons. Since then, biological weapons terrorism has been one of the most urgent problems of national security. But when people look into this issue, they would soon find that there is a lot of misinformation and biased arguments. It is also not an easy task even for researchers to find a reliable source in this field. In such an environment, this book provides accurate and reliable information for readers. It also offers its reader the most comprehensive treatment available of the issue of biological warfare. Part I deals with the utility of biological weapons and biological weapons proliferation issue. Part II concerns defense against biological weapons. Threat posed by biological weapons, detection and investigation technologies of biological weapons attack and the consequence of biological attack are discussed. Part III addresses biological arms control issues, for example, a history of biological weapons convention, verification of biological weapons convention, counter proliferation strategy, UNSCOM experience, bioethics and others. In concluding part, combining in-depth analysis in preceding chapters, Raymond Zilinskas seeks a way to minimize the threat posed by BW. This book is not only a contribution to the discussion of contemporary problems posed by biological weapons but also a various counterbalance against inaccurate and unsubstantial arguments in this field.
