Living Terrors: What America Needs to Know to Survive the Coming Bioterrorist Catastrophe

Couverture
Delacorte Press, 2000 - 232 pages
"The question isn't whether we will face a terrorist attack with a deadly viral or bacterial weapon, but when and where - and how devastating it will be. In this eye-opening account, one of the leading experts on bioterrorism reveals the unprecedented threat of biological attack - and America's startling lack of preparedness. Combining all too plausible glimpses into future annihilation with a cold-eyed assessment of our vulnerability, epidemiologist Dr. Michael T. Osterholm joins John Schwartz of The Washington Post to offer a strategy for survival - for ourselves, our families, and our way of life."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
