A very insightful, concise overview of major biological threats.
This looks a very useful and fascinating book to me.
Take note, it describes weapons research in animal diseases including Foot and Mouth Disease (remember that?), Avian Influenza (remember that?) and African Swine Fever.
I am torn between buying it somewhere and NOT buying on the grounds I will no doubt be thought a terrorist or something. (No, I am thinking of defense against various things.)
