Biosecurity and Bioterrorism is the first book to take a holistic approach to biosecurity with coverage of pathogens, prevention and response methodology. The book is organized into four thematic sections: Part I provides a conceptual understanding of biowarfare, bioterrorism and the laws we have to counteract this; Part II investigates known bioagents and the threat from emerging diseases; Part III focuses on agricultural terrorism and food security; Part IV outlines international, US, and local initiatives for biodefense and biosecurity. Case studies illustrate biodefense against both intentional terrorism and natural outbreaks. The authors bring an extraordinary combination of experience in academia and the clinical world, as well as real-world experience in technical and practical matters, to their writing. They make technical material clear and fascinating for readers with a basic knowledge of biology. Ryan and Glarum address the hazards in the context of vulnerability assessments and the planning strategies government and industry can take to prepare for and respond to such events.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is very timely and applicable, addressing the range and variety of threats and scenarios. The truth is that we don't know exactly what the future will bring in terms of threats, so we need the comprehensive and flexible understanding that is presented within these pages."--Corrie Brown, DVM, U Georgia School of Veterinary Medicine "Ryan and Glarum have produced a reference document appropriate for the libraries of emergency planners and managers, public health leadership, as well as state and local elected officials... Used pedagogically, the book is suitable for graduate-level students in public health, emergency management, public administration , and journalism... The authors bring a balanced mix of scholarship and response experience to the creation of this text."--Bret Atkins, "Review of Biosecurity & Bioterrorism: Containing and Preventing Biological Threats" Journal of Homeland Security and Emergency Management vol.5, 1. 2008.
