The biological weapons convention: a failed revolution

Littlewood, Jez (2005) The biological weapons convention: a failed revolution, Aldershot, UK, Ashgate, 250pp.

Record type: Book


Providing a comprehensive insider's account of the negotiations on the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) Protocol from their origin to collapse, Jez Littlewood examines and explains the efforts to control biological weapons at the international level and assesses the consequences of the failure of the BWC Protocol.
The volume analyzes all the major issues in the negotiations, outlines the positions and views of key states to explain their preferences for particular policies, and assesses the outcome of the negotiations in the broader context of arms control for weapons of mass destruction at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The author provides a detailed assessment of the BWC from 1971 to the completion of the Fifth Review Conference in 2002.
The Biological Weapons Convention is suitable for scholars, policy makers and graduate students working in arms control, proliferation, security and strategic studies fields.
