Summary
In a nonalarmist way, this primer reviews the history of chemical and biological warfare, describes the defenses against currently known biological and chemical agents, considers the incentives and disincentives facing nations that either develop CBW armaments or tolerate their development, and reflects on the prospects for control and disarmament. For the reader who wants solid and level headed information on the current state of CBW affairs
