How to Build a Nuclear Bomb: And Other Weapons of Mass Destruction by Dr Frank Barnaby
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Weapons of mass destruction are the greatest threat to national security in the twenty-first century. Frank Barnaby, nuclear weapons and terrorism expert, describes in straightforward, non-sensational terms what is involved when a state or a terrorist group sets out to make a weapon of mass destruction - biological, chemical, radiological, or nuclear. But How to Build a Nuclear Bomb is not a collection of scare stories- Barnaby explains what a weapon of mass destruction is, what it is capable of doing, and what is needed to produce one and argues that counter-terrorist measures urgently need to be stepped up to meet the challenges of a new era of international terror.
