In From Lambs to Lions, Thomas Preston examines current trends in the proliferation of nuclear and biological weapons capabilities, know-how, and technologies for both state and non-state actors-and then projects these trends over the coming ten to fifteen years to assess how they might impact existing security relationships between states. For answers to questions about security in the face of biological and nuclear weapons proliferation, and for some potentially surprising reassurances, this clear and informative book will be invaluable.
Victory can only begin once we are willing calmly to stare potential defeat in the face and begin to understand its causes. Preston does us all a huge service by pulling no punches in this candid, sophisticated, and hard-eyed look at the nuclear and biological threats that are coming at us.--R.
