Promotional Information

In this highly readable and impressive work, Geoffrey Zubay presents an up-to-date analysis of the use, history, weaponization, and molecular biology of potential agents of bioterrorism. I know of no book that is similar to Agents of Bioterrorism in terms of making this information available to students, policymakers, scientists, and the general public. -- Larry L. Barton, professor of microbiology, University of New Mexico
