Good in Good jacket. 0853456615 Jacket condition: Good; Retired library book with usual library markings. The widespread fear of nuclear war has obscured another threat, from a new generation of weapons of death-those planned for use in chemical and biological warfare. This important new book sounds the alarm about these weapons: it reviews their technologies, the occasions on which they have been used, and potential future developments in their nature and use. The authors consider the status of these weapons in international law, and the possibility that their production will be banned. Taking up U.S. allegations that the Soviet Union and its allies have used chemical weapons in Afghanistan and Southeast Asia, the authors argue that these allegations provided President Reagan with the rationale for a new U.S. move into chemical weapons production. Wo Fire, No Thunder is a timely and important book, and contains information that every American should know Written by scientists for a nonscientific audience, it shows graphically that nuclear weapons are not the only-or necessarily even the most dangerous-threat to our planet. 160 pages.
