Published in conjunction with the eight-hour public-television series airing this spring, Avoiding Armageddon focuses our attention like never before on threats posed by weapons of mass destruction and terrorism. It engages the reader in an exploration of who endangers our national interest, the forms their threats might take, and what can be done to avert the kinds of disasters likely to ensue from the use of unsecured weapons.Martin Schram and his team of reporters explain why biological, chemical, and nuclear warfare may very well be our next nightmare. Using interviews with an international team of experts, Avoiding Armageddon is a riveting story of America's newfound vulnerability and offers a new understanding of the future contours of our personal, national, and global security.
