Banning Chemical Weapons provides a readable and brief outline of chemical warfare; its origin and the offensive and defensive aspects. The aim of this volume is to give technical information to people interested in the wider aspects of disarmament, by showing how this technical material must be used in the negotiations to achieve a worldwide and enforceable ban on chemical weapons. While not a textbook, this volume provides accessible technical background to the issue of chemical disarmament.

'... the author has managed to pack an amazing amount of information into a slim volume and present it in a very readable style: concise yet thorough, factual but also entertaining ...'. Nature
