Featuring an inside look at how germ warfare has been waged throughout history and what form its future might take (and in whose hands), "Germs" reads like a gripping detective story told by fascinating key figures: American and Soviet medical specialists who once made germ weapons but now fight their spread, FBI agents who track Islamic radicals, the Iraqis who built Saddam Hussein's secret arsenal, spies who travel the world collecting lethal microbes, and scientists who see ominous developments on the horizon. With clear scientific explanations and harrowing insights, "Germs" is a masterfully written -- and timely -- work of investigative journalism.
