    U.S. Chemical and Biological Warfare Policy: Strategic Deterrents during the Cold War, 2014

    Edited by Albert J. Mauroni, USAF Counterproliferation Center, Air University, Maxwell AFB, AL 
    This book is a collection of U.S. government documents, primarily from the State Department's "Foreign Relations of the United States," that involve the highest military and civilian leaders discussing the challenge of the Soviet Union's chemical and biological weapons capability and how the United States should deter the potential use of these weapons. Throughout the Cold War, the U.S. military was expected to develop and retain an offensive capability to use these weapons in both tactical and strategic operations. The collection includes commentary by the author and is intended primarily as a resource for those practitioners interested in better understanding the evolution of strategic deterrence theory and understanding the U.S. government's development of unconventional weapons.
