Germs uncovers the truth about biological weapons and shows why bio-warfare and bio-terrorism are fast becoming our worst national nightmare. Based on hundreds of interviews with scientists and senior officials - including President Clinton and defectors from the former Soviet Union's sinister bio weapons labs - as well as recently declassified documents, Germs shows us bio-warriors past and present at work in their trade.
A frightening and unforgettable narrative of cutting-edge science and spycraft, Germs shows us why advances in biology and the spread of germ weapons expertise to such countries as Iran, Iraq, and North Korea could make germs the weapon of the 21st century.
