What is bioterrorism and how can the United States prepare and defend itself from this threat? Readers will learn about the history of biological warfare and terrorism—from ancient to medieval to modern times. Stories of a salmonella cult attack, a smallpox outbreak war game to test the nation’s readiness for a biological attack, and biosecurity breaches in Tokyo describe some of the nation’s experiences with biological warfare. Through informative text, full-color photos, and fact boxes, this book details US Army training against bioweapons, the future of biosecurity, and the prevention of bioweapon proliferation in the global community.
