'The history of bioweapons and "bioterror," as people began to say in the 1990s, is as much a history of facts as it is a narrative...built on phantasms,' writes Philipp Sarasin in his erudite polemic, Anthrax. Sarasin shows how stories as diverse as Tom Clancy's novels and nineteenth-century disease myths contributed to the general feeling of terror...Anthrax is an incisive, intriguing, and well-researched cultural history of the anthrax attacks. As yet, none of the perpetrators have been apprehended, though it seems likely that some of the weapon grade material might have come from within an American facility.
