However, the special emphasis of the book is response to disasters caused by biological, chemical, and radiological agents. Vital information on post-disaster restoration of basic public health, psychological effects, and establishing communication is provided. Each chapter is prefaced with "Key Messages" and "Learning Objectives," and followed by "Study Questions" and "Internet Activities."
