    Chemical and Biological Terrorism identifies the R&D efforts needed to implement recommendations in key areas: pre-incident intelligence, detection and identification of chemical and biological agents, protective clothing and equipment, early recognition that a population has been covertly exposed to a pathogen, mass casualty decontamination Reviews: 1. The United States currently lacks a comprehensive strategy for countering the threats of terrorism involving nuclear, radiological, chemical, and biological weapons. Although federal, state, and local governments have made strides to prepare for terrorism involving these weapons, the whole remains less than the sum of the parts.

    'The Changing Face of Terrorism' evaluates the continuing threat of CBRN weapons and counter-measures since 9/11 and into the 21st century. Terrorism including chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) weapons and the 'war on terror' are major features of international relations. Biological and chemical threats that were once thought to be exotic or outdated have become domestic and rejuvenated. However, despite this recognition we are still largely without effective tools to detect, intervene and/or prevent against intentional release of biological and chemical weapons.
