Abstract:

"Gives readers a detailed understanding of how specific biological weapons work and how those affected by the weapons would be treated. Teaches the reader to recognize the symptoms of each biological weapon and understand the threat these weapons pose. Concentrates on the weapons considered the greatest threats by the CDC such as Anthrax, Botulism, Smallpox, Ricin toxin, Ebola, Plague, and Viral encephalitis. Provides a detailed understanding of how specific biological weapons work and how to recognize the symptoms of those affected by the weapons as well as how they would be treated. Includes case studies, chapter review questions, and the instructor's supplemental materials include PowerPoint presentations, a Test Bank, and suggestions for student projects. Begins with a primer on microbiology, the human immune system's response to these biological agents, and the defense agencies involved with protecting the public against these agents"--
