International Handbook on Chemical Weapons Proliferation by Gordon M. Burck & Charles C. Flowerree is well over 500g & some 650pp. Book is ex-Singleton Heritage Library Infantry Centre. This copiously documented examination of the problem of the spread of chemical warfare capabilities includes a military analysis of chemical use in the Iran-Iraq War, a survey of 39 countries suspected of having or seeking chemical warfare capabilities, and an analysis of the relevant political factors. The book begins with an overview of the study's objectives and findings and the elements that comprise a chemical warfare capability. Part I starts with an analysis of the available data on Iraq that provides a useful model against which to compare information on other countries. The country reviews found in Part II are grouped by regions and Part III deals with the suitability of long-range delivery systems for chemical warfare and measures undertaken or contemplated for arresting the spread of chemical weapons. The book's copiously documented findings provide a solid basis for future assessments of the proliferation problem and establish International Handbook on Chemical Weapons Proliferation as a major reference work for university libraries, research institutions, the media, and government officials. It will also serve as excellent background reading for courses dealing with international security issues.
