Weapons of Mass Destruction

The Threat of Chemical, Biological, and Nuclear Weapons

Series: Issues in Focus Today

By Tracy A. Phillips

Weapons of mass destruction, or WMDs, are capable of killing thousands of people at a time. They include nuclear bombs and those that spread radioactive material; biological agents that cause illness; and chemical weapons that can injure and kill scores of people. Recent terror attacks have raised the public’s awareness of the capabilities of these weapons. Author Tracy A. Phillips outlines the main types of WMDs, who is using them, and how people are working to save the world from the devastation they could cause.
