Abstract

And the final chapter in the volume, co-authored by Adam Dolnik (of the University of Wollongong in Australia) and James Forest, offers yet another perspective on the future of WMD terrorism. They note that based on the historical record, the future of WMD terrorism can be characterized as a good news/bad news story. The good news is that there is very limited precedent to follow, and terrorist groups can study and learn from only a few “successful” attacks involving some form of chemical, biological, or radiological (but not yet nuclear) weapon.
