Historical dictionary of nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare by Benjamin C Garrett( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Human experience with nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) warfare has been limited, especially in comparison to conventional forms of warfare. Our experience with nuclear warfare is confined to a period of less than one week during the end of World War II, when the United States successfully used two nuclear weapons against targets in Japan. The course of biological warfare and modern use of biological weapons are difficult to track owing to the difficulty of differentiating deliberate use from natural outbreaks. However, the keen potential of biological weapons in acts of terror was shown in the mass disruption caused in the fall 2001 experience in the U.S. with the release of anthrax through the American postal system. Chemical weapons have been used in a handful of conflicts since their introduction to modern warfare during World War I, most recently during the Iran-Iraq War during the 1980s. Despite this limited experience, NBC warfare continues to exert a certain fascination among states." "The Historical Dictionary of Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Warfare covers the development and use of NBC weapons as well as efforts to limit or control the use of these weapons through a chronology, a bibliography, an introductory essay, and dictionary entries. Over 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries provide a unique selection of terms related to NBC warfare, ranging from basic descriptions of substances used in NBC warfare to details on incidents and episodes where NBC weapons were used. Entries are structured around historical events, persons important to NBC warfare, countries where such weapons have been developed or used, and international treaties and treaty-related organizations."--Jacket

Chemical and biological warfare : a comprehensive survey for the concerned citizen by Eric Croddy( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The armaments of chemical and biological warfare (CBW) are now widely held not just by nation-states, but by terrorist and criminal enterprises. The weapons themselves are relatively inexpensive and very easy to hide, and organizations of just a few dozen people are capable of deploying potentially devastating attacks with them. While in the twentieth century most of our arms-control effort focused, rightly, on nuclear arsenals, in the twenty-first century CBW will almost certainly require just as much attention. This book defines the basics of CBW for the concerned citizen, including non-alarmist scientific descriptions of the weapons and their antidotes, methods of deployment and defensive response, and the likelihood in the current global political climate of additional proliferation

The analysis of competing hypotheses (ACH) in the assessment of chemical warfare activities by John Hart( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study contributes to the theory and practice of how chemical weapons programmes and activity can be evaluated in the context of the international prohibition against their development, production, stockpiling, transfer and use as reflected in the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention. It presents an application of a hybrid and qualitative variation of Heuer's Analysis of Competing Hypothesis (ACH) directed towards arms control verification and intelligence practice using three case studies: the Soviet Union, Iraq, and suspected at al-Qaeda affiliates. The study is comprehensive and multidisciplinary in approach, rather than reductionist. It draws on a very large array of data as they rate to the technical, military and politico-strategic characteristics of chemical warfare, linking a large number of historical detail with conceptual insight into the nature of chemical warfare and chemical weapons arms control. The work also places intelligence operational art on a more secure theoretical academic foundation in the chemical weapons-related context, partly by providing a useful basis for the understanding of the operational- and strategic-level analysis of chemical weapons threat assessments and appropriate policy responses. It shifts ACH practice closer to theoretical international relations models with respect to higher-level strategic and defence analysis, and international relations theory as it relates to WMD-related international peace and security questions. It does so partly by suggesting that a corollary exists between the role played by national intelligence requirements, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, that played by arms control verification. In particular, the information taskings for both weapons-specific arms control verification and national intelligence overlap to a great extent. However, the priorities and perceived political acceptability for arms control verification and intelligence assessments are distinct and, in many respects, opposed to each other. For example, an arms control assessment carried out within a multilateral legal regime tends to possess greater overall international credibility and weight so long as it is done in a professional technical manner whose findings then inform the subsequent political and legal considerations. National based intelligence assessments are, as a rule, necessarily kept secret to protect sources and methods and are also more likely to be questioned on the grounds that the conclusions support national policy. Nevertheless, the information taskings should, on the basis of their respective technical requirements, yield similar outcomes. While in practice this does not necessarily occur, the gap can perhaps be narrowed on the basis of better operational-level understanding of how such assessments should ideally be carried out. National intelligence-driven processes, procedures and purposes can perhaps be better described at the strategic level by realism international relations theory, while those for arms control verification can perhaps be better described by neoliberal institutionalism. Those in academia, government and the public can usefully refer to this study for a baseline of authoritative information with which to evaluate the derivation and use of information relevant to verification processes and requirements and their broader relevance for security and defence studies. Such evaluations can assist the consideration of what verification data actually mean and how technical and scientific findings relate to the question of treaty compliance by states and the resulting implications for the strength of the rule of law at the inter- and intra-state levels, as well as for strategic and defence studies in general
