Synopsis: The second edition of the Encyclopedia of Bioterrorism Defense provides complete coverage of bioterrorism and defense against it, spanning scientific, technological, clinical, legal, historical, and political aspects. The topics cover the most recent developments and thinking on biodefense, biosecurity, terrorism, science, and policy. In addition, the Encyclopedia of Bioterrorism Defense provides an up-to-date overview of U.S. federal biodefense efforts, including explanations of all of the relevant agencies and missions, research agendas, legislation, and regulations. This edition revises and updates the original Encyclopedia, making it the single authoritative resource for students, scientists, policymakers, and journalists.

Key features:

  • Comprehensively covers the field of bioterrorism, including related science, technology, medicine, politics, law, and history
  • Topics include entries on bioterrorism agents, detection, clinical presentation of disease, defense efforts, risk assessments, treaties, past incidents of bioterrorism, and pertinent people and organizations engaged in terrorist activities
  • User friendly, with biological agents covered consistently across entries
  • Includes important case studies, with discussion of lessons learned

About the Author: A graduate of the University of Miami School of Medicine, Richard Pilch, M.D., joined the Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Monterey Institute of International Studies in January 2002, where he now serves as the Scientist-in-Residence of the Chemical and Biological Weapons Nonproliferation Program. Dr. Pilch is a project manager for the Cooperative Biological Research program in Russia, and is co-writing a book on the dichotomous use of toxins as both therapeutic agents and weapons of war.  He also maintains an interest in the medical and healthcare aspects of chemical, biological, and radiological threats, as well as the monitoring of biotechnological advances for possible offensive or defensive application.

Raymond A. Zilinskas, Ph.D. is director of the Chemical and Biological Weapons Nonproliferation Program, Center for Nonproliferation Studies, Monterey Institute of International Studies. In 1993, Dr. Zilinskas was a William Foster Fellow at the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, which seconded him to the United Nations Special Commission to work as a biological analyst; as such, he participated in two biological warfare-related inspections in Iraq. He has since then worked for the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute and a consultant to the U.S. Department of State and Department of Defense. He currently focuses on developing effective biological arms control, assessing the proliferation potential of the former Soviet Union?s biological warfare program, and meeting the threat of bioterrorism. He edited the book Biological Warfare: Modern Offense and Defense (1999)
