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

15 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Explores the conflict between moral behavior and national security as it relates to chemical and biological warfare, arguing that the compromise of moral principles on the issue has led to greater insecurity around the world, and expressing the need to foster a universal sense of revulsion for poison weapons."
Clouds of secrecy : the army's germ warfare tests over populated areas by Leonard A Cole( Book )

14 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Military researchers had been secretly spraying clouds of bacteria over populated areas in order to study America's vulnerability to biological weapons. 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 829 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

Blacks in power : a comparative study of Black and white elected officials by Leonard A Cole( Book )

15 editions published between 1976 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the remarkable increase of blacks at all levels of political life and makes the first systematic comparison of black and white elected officials. While observers have disagreed as to whether black politicians act differently from their white counterparts, little empirical work has been done because until recently there were few blacks in office. Leonard A. Cole's analysis of elected officials in New Jersey has an important bearing on the controversy.Originally published in 1976.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
