Reviews
"...a salutary read, made all the more powerful by the author's intimate understanding of what these chemicals do to people....Banning Chemical Weapons will help enlighten those who make the decisions and, it is to be hoped, to persuade them that possession of chemical weapons is not in a country's best interests." Times Higher Education Supplement

"...the author has managed to pack an amazing amount of information into a slim volume and present it in a very readable style: concise yet thorough, factual but also entertaining, with frequent flashes of dry humour." Nature

"Well written and easy to read, Crone's book pulls the reader into the science behind the decisions made about chemical weapons." Military Intelligence
