Summary "This book, written by 36 experts on a wide variety of public health aspects of terrorism, provides a comprehensive review of lessons learned from September 11 and the dissemination of anthrax and their aftermaths. It reviews potential terrorist weapons and approaches to reducing threats from these weapons. In addition, it describes ways of improving the public health system, protecting civil liberties, promoting international law, and exploring the roots of terrorism. The book is essential reading for health professionals, students in the health professions, and others concerned with terrorism and its health consequences."--BOOK JACKET
