Publisher Comments:

Biological Terrorism gives a brief history of the use of biological weapons from references in the Bible through the anthrax attacks on the United States in the fall of 2001. The authors highlight the major microorganisms used in bioterrorism and the research being conducted to develop vaccines for these pathogens. Professors Goodwin and Phillis also present both sides of the global debate over whether or not certain strains should be eradicated entirely.
