'...his previous forays into this subject have made him the Chemical Biological Weapons professionals' author and this book does nothing to diminish this view. It is also timely.' - British Army Review An analysis of the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons which examines the attractions and utility of these weapons for some developing states, the difficulties encountered in trying to control their spread, and the lessons from the Rabta controversy and the Gulf War. It reviews the evolution of American chemical weapons policy under the Bush administration, the implications of the Chemical Weapons Convention, and the problems posed by the inherently dynamic nature of these weapons and their tactical flexibility.
