In writing this book, we have been able to call on the truly
remarkable work accomplished by several organizations, much of which
is in the public domain. The CDC has extensive information relating
to bioterrorism. Similarly, governmental websites such as those
of USAMRIID, Homeland Security, the FBI, and the DHHS all have dedicated
web pages on this issue. Countless nongovernmental websites were
also useful resources, in particular the Center for Biosecurity,
the American College of Physicians (ACP), the American College of
Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM), and the Agency
for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). What follows
is a partial list of source material for this book that would serve
anyone interested in exploring their subject more deeply.
