Perspective on Survival and Bioterrorism

Where can we find the needed perspective on such things as a flu pandemic and bioterrorism? William R. Clark offers that in his book, Bracing for Armageddon?

If you’re concerned about being victimized by biowarfare attacks since September 11, ’01, this book is for you. It’s written for the general reader and discusses the science of what could happen, what is likely to happen, and what most likely won’t happen.

Could our food or water be poisoned? What about genetically engineered pathogens? How serious are the threats of smallpox, anthrax, plague, botulism, and ebola? Many bioterrorism attacks have failed or have at least been relatively ineffective. Clark interviews a number of experts and concludes a flu outbreak like the 1918 flu is the much greater threat.

Clark is Professor and Chair Emeritus of Immunology at UCLA and has written extensively on topics in science and medicine for the general public. Unlike the alarmist, popular media, Clark offers valuable insight on what we should be concerned about and what we need not worry about. Read Bracing for Armageddon? and draw your own conclusions.
