by Leonard A. Cole

"Conducting his own detective work, bioterrorism expert Leonard Cole has composed an account that gets right to the heart of all the noisy sound bites and hysterical headlines. Cole is perhaps the only person outside law enforcement to have interviewed every one of the surviving inhalotion-anthrax victims, along with the relatives, friends, and associates of those who died, as well as the public health officials, scientists, researchers, hospital workers, and treating physicians - indeed, anyone who has something of value to add to the story. Speaking through their voices, the narrative reflects the tension and emotions stirred by the events from that fall in 2001." "This minute-by-minute chronicle of the anthrax attacks recounts more than a history of recent current events; it uncovers the untold and perhaps even more important story of how scientists, doctors, and researchers perform life-saving work under intense pressure and public scrutiny. The Anthrax Letters is a spellbinding behind-the-scenes expose that amply demonstrates how vulnerable America and the world really were in 2001 - and how critical scientific research promises to strengthen our ability to address the challenges we must meet in the future."--Jacket.… (more)
