Product description


"It seems highly unlikely that the Rhodesian army would have used chemical agents on their own people, but Cross presents his evidence in compelling form and seems able to support his claims in this dark book about Rhodesia's internal struggles during the late 1970s..."--Books Monthly

"The Rhodesian example is an important case study in how some nations and non-State actors might view the utility of CBW in 21st century counterinsurgency warfare." --Insight on Africa

" ... Very impressive... This is likely to be the last word on the subject..."--CBRNe World

" ... a welcome addition to the small, but growing scholarly literature on the history of chemical and biological warfare ... Cross' definitive account of an obscure set of events little known outside the specialist community offers important insight into CBW use by states in combating insurgencies."--National Defense University News

About the Author

Dr. Glenn Cross currently works for the US Government on WMD issues. Since the early 1990s, he has worked on biological weapons (BW) issues for several U.S. intelligence agencies. Beginning in the early 2000s, he has supervised analysis of WMD terrorism topics and most recently BW issues. His expertise focuses on state and non-state BW efforts. From September 2008 to October 2010, Dr. Cross was the Deputy National Intelligence Officer for WMD & Proliferation responsible for biological weapons issues on the Director of National Intelligence's National Intelligence Council. He also was a post-doctoral fellow at Georgetown University where he conducted an exhaustive study of the Rhodesian CBW program as an example of a CBW program that had slipped under the radar of most other nations. Dr. Cross is a frequent speaker at panels and workshops on biological weapons and has been quoted in books and periodicals on biological weapons. Dr. Cross received his A.B. from Columbia University in history and political science, an M.A. from King's College, London in War Studies, a second M.A. from George Mason University in international trade, and a Ph.D. in biodefense from George Mason University.
