by Critical Art Ensemble
The sixth Critical Art Ensemble book offers a radical reframing of the rhetoric surrounding germ warfare. After refuting the idea that massive biological attack is a probable future occurrence, the book goes on to argue that biological weapons programs primarily serve the economic interests of the military-security complex, squandering resources needed to fight the massive loss of life each year from emerging infectious diseases.
The book also includes two appendices examining the case of the U.S. Justice Department against Buffalo's own Steve Kurtz, for which the original manuscript of the book was seized in the state's investigation. More info on Steve's case is online at www.caedefensefund.org.
