Biohazard by Ken Alibek with Stephen Handelman

In this fast-paced memoir, Ken Alibek combines cutting-edge science with the narrative techniques of a thriller to describe some of the most awful weapons imaginable. The result will remind readers of The Hot Zone, Richard Preston's smart bestseller about the Ebola virus. That book focuses on the dangers of a freak accident; Biohazard shows how disease can become a deliberate tool of war. Alibek, once a top scientist in the Soviet Union's biological weapons program, describes putting anthrax on a warhead and targeting a city on the other side of the world. "A hundred kilograms of anthrax spores would, in optimal atmospheric conditions, kill up to three million people in any of the densely populated metropolitan areas of the United States," he writes. "A single SS-18 [missile] could wipe out the population of a city as large as New York."

Chilling passages like these, plus discussions of proliferation and terrorism, make Biohazard a harrowing book, but it also has a human side. Alibek, who defected to the United States, describes the routine danger of his work: "A bioweapons lab leaves its mark on a person forever." An unending stream of vaccinations has destroyed his sense of smell, afflicted him with allergies, made it impossible to eat certain kinds of food, and "weakened my resistance to disease and probably shortened my life." But it didn't take away his ability to tell an astonishing story. --John J. Miller

coverFactories of Death : Japanese Biological Warfare 1932-45 and the American Cover-Up by Sheldon H. Harris

"Dr. Harris' book is unlikely to be eclipsed by other future endeavors; he has accessed all existing texts in his careful documentation of Japanese BW atrocities. It is a must for any serious college/graduate student with an interest in BW (or BT). Without being professorial or talmudic, Dr. Harris provides a treasure trove of citations to what was, perhaps, the only smoking gun in the history of the purposeful use of biological warfare agents. Previous articles and books pale in comparison. This is THE book around which any and all discussions of BW should center. It is unlikely that this book will ever be dated. If and when BW or BT becomes a topic of discussion, this is the Rosetta Stone to explain the how and why they had their modern day origins. "--John S. Marr

coverNBC : Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Warfare on the Modern Battlefield (Brassey's Modern Military Equipment) by John Norris, Will Fowler

"An interesting general reference on modern NBC technology. This book, following the format and echoing the informational context of former JANES NBC DEFENSE editor Terry Gander's earlier book on this subject (NBC: Nuclear, Biological & Chemical Warfare, ISBN 0711017220, Ian Allen Ltd., London, 1987), provides a somewhat updated overview of current developments in military biochemical defensive and offensive warfare. Although the book contains a few small errors (mainly in misidentification of various respirators), it succeeds in giving the interested public a better insight into an area of defensive technology about which little is commonly known. Containing a number of black and white photographic illustrations, the book constitutes a worthwhile addition to the reference library--either for someone directly involved in the field of NBC defense or one who wishes a handy modern source of reference to the terms, nomenclature and hardware which characterise today's modern NBC defense battlefield.

Superterrorism : Assassins, Mobsters and Weapons of Mass Destruction by Glenn E. Schweitzer, Carole C. Dorsch

Glenn Schweitzer sounds an alarm alerting us to the barrage of new terrorist threats targeted at Americans in the form of biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons. Superterrorism - heinous and violent acts aimed at causing massive death and destruction - poses the greatest threat to life as we know it. Schweitzer spotlights for the first time the volatile mix created when religious and other zealots join forces with mobsters, drawing on billions of dollars of laundered drug money to bankroll terrorist attacks. He warns that the tried-and-true routes for smuggling drugs and arms may become highways for contraband nuclear, chemical, and biological materials that could lead to the kind of holocaust that Americans have never known. Are we prepared for a chemical, biological, or nuclear attack? Schweitzer provides a shocking answer, but also suggests steps to prevent the worst from happening.

coverThe United States and Biological Warfare : Secrets from the Early Cold War and Korea by Stephen Endicott, Edward Hagerman

"This book is disturbing to an extreme degree. As prosecutors, Hagerman and Endicott present a strong case. They cannot be said to be dispassionate, but they are careful, even judicious. At a minimum their research and revelations raise questions about the possible use of biological warfare by the United States in the Korean War that must be answered before we indulge in further moral condemnation of Iraq's research and development of a germ warfare capability."--Stephen E. Ambrose
