International Handbook on Chemical Weapons Proliferation

Synopsis

This copiously documented examination of the problem of the spread of chemical warfare capabilities includes a military analysis of chemical use in the Iran-Iraq War, a survey of 39 countries suspected of having or seeking chemical warfare capabilities, and an analysis of the relevant political factors. With the concern over possible chemical warfare by Iraq in the Persian Gulf War, this handbook is especially timely. Also reviewed in other sections are chemical warfare agent production technology and the conversion of civilian production, long-range missile use, and various efforts to stem chemical warfare proliferation.
