Review:

'The first substantial account of the rise and fall of Britain as world leader in biological armament - essential reading for understanding bioweapons proliferation today.' - J.P. Perry Robinson, Sussex Director, Harvard Sussex Program, SPRU - Science and Technology Policy Research, University of Sussex
'This is a powerful study in an area that is of grim relevance for science and terrorism...Drawing on recently released government papers, Balmer's book makes shocking and essential reading.' - John Cornwell, Sunday Times
