"Extensively revised, reorganized, and updated, this second edition of the bestselling Handbook of Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents goes well beyond the "dirty thirty" commonly discussed agents and provides rapid access to a wide range of agents that can be used as weapons. This edition incorporates additional classes of agents, expands existing classes, and increases the number of agents described. Expanding the scope of the original, this edition is rich with scientific data and provides more information on the chemical, physical, and biological properties of these agents and their health effects."--Jacket.
