Describes the application of research to the evolution of weapons. It shows how natural, engineering, information and environmental sciences are exploited how even social science is applied to recruitment, battlefield and logistical management, and careful preparation of terroristic acts.

Book News
There are three stories that popular-science journalist Richardson tells: what science offers to the military as the product of research, the advantages accruing to society as a result of the military sponsorship of scientific investigation, and why terrorism has spread during the same period of scientific-military progress and left governments and populations so vulnerable to its scourge. Overall he explores how some people use the accumulation of the knowledge about nature to immobilize, maim, kill, and otherwise inconvenience others. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c.
