About this product
- DescriptionIn the aftermath of 9/11, the potential terror of weapons of mass destruction- from nuclear, biological, and chemical to dirty bombs-preoccupies national security experts. In Chemical Warfare, Frederic J. Brown, presents a cogent, invative framework for understanding the historical forces that have restrained the use of WMD and how they continue to have relevance today. Analyzing both world wars, he argues that the restraints on use were complex and often unpredictable and ranged from the political to the techlogical.
