Summary
  • During the last century, advances in the life sciences were used in the development of biological and chemical weapons in large-scale state offensive programmes, many of which targeted the nervous system. This study questions whether the development of novel biological and chemical neuroweapons can be prevented as neuroscience progresses
  • ''The justified excitement about modern brain science should also come with a warning label. That's what Malcolm Dando has given us in this timely, powerful and deeply informed book.'' - Jonathan D. Moreno, University of Pennsylvania, USA''Chemical and biological weapons and their intersection require an understanding of the science and the international policy banning them. Non-scientists will value his clear explanation of brain science. Neuroscientists will understand why their work merits scrutiny for weapons implications. All of us will benefit by Dando's singular contribution to why we should be worried and why we must act now.'' - Marie Isabelle Chevrier, Rutgers University-Camden, USA
