Biological Weapons is as an excellent introduction to the problems biological weapons pose for contemporary policymakers and public officials, particularly in the United States. It addresses how best to deter the use of such weapons, the resulting policies of the Department of Homeland Security, and the ways to constrain proliferation.
Jeanne Guillemin recounts the circumstances under which scientists, soldiers, and statesmen were able to mobilize resources for extensive biological weapons programs in the wake of the events of September 11 and the anthrax attacks of 2001. She then analyzes why these weapons, targeted against civilians, were never used in a major conflict. Guillemin wisely points out that public awareness through education can help calm fears in today's tension-filled climate and promote constructive political action to reduce the risks of a biological weapons catastrophe. Biological Weapons is required reading for every concerned citizen, government policymaker, public-health official, and national-security analyst who wants to understand this complex and timely issue.
