Demon in the Freezer: A True Story
Richard Preston (au)
The first major bioterror event in the U.S. -- the anthrax attacks in Oct. 2001 -- was a clarion request for scientists who work with “hot” agents to find ways of protecting civilian populations against biological weapons. Here, Preston takes us into the heart of USAMRID, the U.S. Army Med. Res. Inst. of Infectious Diseases at Ft. Detrick, MD, now the epicenter of nat. biodefense. Preston reports on the gov’ts. response to the attacks & takes us into the ongoing FBI invest. Peter Jarhling, the top scientist at USAMRID, is leading a team of scientists doing controversial experiments with live smallpox, reawakening the virus. Preston dramatizes the conflict it has provoked within the scientific community, & he explains what may be at stake if Jarhling’s bold experiment fails.
