New books covering the subject of biological and chemical weapons (BCW) are now coming out weekly. The first section provides a comprehensive analysis of the technical issues that make chemical weapons a viable threat in the future. Although most of them rehash the subject in a different format or sensationalize the horrifying potential of these weapons, this work is fundamentally different. It provides new information not found in other works. It also includes an excellent chapter that projects the evolution of biological weapons made possible by biotechnological advances. The section concludes with an average discussion of potential BCW attack scenarios.
