In From Lambs to Lions, Thomas Preston examines current trends in the proliferation of nuclear and biological weapons capabilities, know-how, and technologies for both state and non-state actors-and then projects these trends over the coming ten to fifteen years to assess how they might impact existing security relationships between states. For answers to questions about security in the face of biological and nuclear weapons proliferation, and for some potentially surprising reassurances, this clear and informative book will be invaluable.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Victory can only begin once we are willing calmly to stare potential defeat in the face and begin to understand its causes. Preston does us all a huge service by pulling no punches in this candid, sophisticated, and hard-eyed look at the nuclear and biological threats that are coming at us. -- R. James Woolsey, former Director of the CIA; Chairman, Woolsey Partners LLC
This is a significant, interesting, and well-written contribution to the international relations/national security literature...Preston's work is a must read for policy makers and professionals in the field. Summing Up: Essential. Graduate Students through practitioners. * CHOICE *
Preston argues that we have arrived at a point in human history when, for the first time, relatively weak states and non-state actors can brandish weapons so potent that they effectively neutralize the capabilities of the great powers. His book is a penetrating analysis of the most worrisome challenge facing the United States and its allies in the twenty-first century: the spread of nuclear and biological weapons to hostile states, terrorist groups, or both. Preston argues-convincingly-that even after 9/11 this threat is underestimated. He then encourages an intensified focus on the two most potent arrows in the weaker actor's quiver and makes valuable recommendations as to how policymakers can best address this challenge, which, if left unaddressed, could result in carnage so catastrophic that it would dwarf that caused by the 9/11 attacks. This is policy-relevant scholarship at its finest. -- Devin T. Hagerty, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
