A large amount of reading material about biological weapons is available over the net. If you are interested in Biological weapons , I also suggest that you search www.cnn.com and/or www.cbs.com for recent news articles regarding the same. I have included most of these articles in the "News Articles" section.
The material given below is what I think is the best that is available over the internet. If you have any files or links that you think should be mentioned here, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org .
1) The Bioweaponeers:
This article, accompanied by suitable photographs, is a very interesting series
of informal conversations between Richard Preston, Bill Richards (the former
no.1 in the US Biological weapons program) and Ken Alibekov (the former no.2 in
the Soviet program). If you want to hear about it from the horse's mouth, here
2) Dark Winter:
This is an official file which documents the outcome of a mock bioterrorist
exercise carried out by the US govt. in July 2001 to test it's state of
readiness to such an attack.
There was a mock president of the US, a
mock leader of Iraq, et al.. Rather like reading the script of a very good drama
actually.. problem is.. this could happen.
The figures mentioned in this exercise are probably the best estimates we have
of how a smallpox epidemic could be expected to spread throughout the world.
