Biohazard (book)

Biohazard is the title of a book by former Soviet biological warfare researcher Ken Alibek that purports to expose the former Soviet Union's extensive covert biological weapons program.

The book is a semi-romanticized auto-biography depicting the life of a bioweapons developer. It was first published by Hutchinson in the United Kingdom in 1999, then re-released by Arrow Books in 2000.

For the most part, the book's assertions recently have been confirmed by U.S. and other Western microbiological and bioweapons authorities, while site-visiting many of the laboratory and weapons production sites and cataloguing the pathogens. The vast Soviet Union biological weapons infrastructure dwarfed anything that was done in the West.
