Summary

Summary

After letters containing spores that carried the deadly disease anthrax sickened 21 Americans and killed five in October 2001, the government and the health care system have struggled to prepare for even more serious bioterrorist attacks-and argued fiercely about how best to do it. This anthology considers ways of handling smallpox attacks, attacks on agriculture or food, and other bioterror threats, as well as methods of preventing such terrible possibilities from happening.
