In an age where anthrax can be produced in a garage and multilateral agreements among nations seem ever harder to reach, the threat of biowarfare could rapidly spiral out of control.

In this authoritative guide, international expert Malcolm Dando inspects the evidence rarely made available to the public, and explains:

What biological weapons are
When biowarfare research started and how it has developed
How we can reduce the threat of biological warfare and terrorism

From the history of biowarfare development programmes to the possibilities for bioterrorist attacks, Dando also describes what he believes is necessary to limit the availability and potency of biological agents in the future. Examining the backdrop of legislative wrangling and failed international agreements, this well-argued work interweaves politics and technology to reveal the reality behind this twenty-first century menace.
