The eleventh plague : the politics of biological and chemical warfare by Leonard A Cole( Book )

Clouds of secrecy : the army's germ warfare tests over populated areas by Leonard A Cole( Book )

In the 1970s Americans learned for the first time that they had been used for decades as unsuspecting guinea pigs in a series of astonishing experiments conducted by the US Army.

Many civilians have suffered illness, even death, as a consequence
The anthrax letters : a medical detective story by Leonard A Cole( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conducting his own detective work, bioterrorism expert Leonard Cole has composed an account that gets right to the heart of all the noisy sound bites and hysterical headlines. Cole is perhaps the only person outside law enforcement to have interviewed every one of the surviving inhalotion-anthrax victims, along with the relatives, friends, and associates of those who died, as well as the public health officials, scientists, researchers, hospital workers, and treating physicians - indeed, anyone who has something of value to add to the story. Speaking through their voices, the narrative reflects the tension and emotions stirred by the events from that fall in 2001." "This minute-by-minute chronicle of the anthrax attacks recounts more than a history of recent current events; it uncovers the untold and perhaps even more important story of how scientists, doctors, and researchers perform life-saving work under intense pressure and public scrutiny. The Anthrax Letters is a spellbinding behind-the-scenes expose that amply demonstrates how vulnerable America and the world really were in 2001 - and how critical scientific research promises to strengthen our ability to address the challenges we must meet in the future."--Jacket

"In a narrative based largely on interviews, terrorism expert Leonard A.

He also interviews Palestinians, including imprisoned handlers of suicide bombers, who endorse or deplore suicide bombings. He concludes that the Israeli experience with preparedness and coping offers valuable lessons for the United States."--Jacket

Local planning for terror and disaster : from bioterrorism to earthquakes by Leonard A Cole( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Local Planning for Terror and Disaster gives voice to experts in key fields involved with local preparedness, assessing the quality of preparedness in each field, and offering directions for improvement. Introductory chapters provide overviews of terror medicine, security and communications, which are indispensable to successful preparedness, while subsequent chapters concentrate on a particular field and how responders from that field communicate and interact with others during and after an event. Thus, a chapter by a physician discusses not only the doctor's role but how that role is, or should be, coordinated with emergency medical technicians and police. Similarly, chapters by law enforcement figures also review police responsibilities and interactions with nurses, EMTs, volunteers and other relevant responders. Developed from topics at recent Symposia on Terror Medicine and Security, Local Planning also encompasses aspects of emergency and disaster medicine, as well as techniques for diagnosis, rescue, coordination and security that are distinctive to a terrorist attack. Each chapter also includes a case study that demonstrates preparedness, or lack thereof, for a real or hypothetical event, including lessons learned, next steps, and areas for improvement in this global era which increasingly calls for preparedness at a local level."--Publisher's website

Is AIDS a biological experiment?( Visual )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores several alternative and "conspiracy" theories about the original cause of AIDS. Cole asserts that the American government has performed dangerous medical experiments on an unknowing American public in the past, and that AIDS may just be the latest example. Snead insists that international governments are similarly careless with human life, and suggest links between AIDS, cancer, immunizations, and genocide. Strecker speculates that AIDS is a result of laboratory contamination of vaccines, which the American government knows about but is unwilling to rectify
