NPS Prof Publishes Groundbreaking Book on Bioweapons
Submitted 12/2/2008 3:24:35 PM

With the Director of Homeland Security saying last month that he considers biological threats the most pressing and challenging security issue, Naval Postgraduate School Assistant Professor of National Security Affairs Anne L. Clunan chose a propitious time to publish a pioneering book on attributing blame for the use of biological warfare agents. Terrorism, War, or Disease? Unraveling the Use of Biological Weapons, co-edited with former director of the NPS Center for Contemporary Conflict and National Security Affairs senior lecturer Peter Lavoy, is the first anthology by recognized leaders in the field to rigorously examine the complex scientific, political, military, legal and policy challenges in determining when bioweapons have been used and who has used them. Clunan formerly served as special assistant to the deputy director, Department of State Office of Soviet Union Affairs. Lavoy is currently National Intelligence Officer for South Asia at the National Intelligence Council and previously served as Director for Counterproliferation Policy in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. The book was published this year by Stanford University Press as part of its prestigious Security Studies series. (Released)
