Summary

"In Imaginary Weapons, Sharon Weinberger takes us on a wild ride through the hidden underworld of official fringe science in America. From antimatter weapons to psychic warriors, Weinberger shows that the U.S. government is increasingly susceptible to outlandish claims. But the isomer weapon - a futuristic device that would rival the power of a nuclear bomb - may be the strangest case of them all." "Imaginary Weapons provides a sometimes darkly humorous take on a more serious subject: the decline of scientific expertise among U.S. national security agencies and the government's increasing susceptibility to hyped claims about weapons of mass destruction."--BOOK JACKET.
