This literature review forms part of the first phase of the Anatomizing Chemical and Biological Non-State Adversaries Project. As such, it serves three different functions. First, the review provides context for the overall study by introducing and specifying many of the basic concepts involved and can serve as a primer for those less familiar with the issues surrounding chemical and biological (CB) terrorism. Second, it synthesizes the existing literature on chemical and biological non-state adversaries and identifies the major areas of agreement and disagreement amongst scholars in the field. Third, it engages with the scholarship in an attempt to form the basis for inferring a set of preliminary qualitative indicators of the most likely future non-state perpetrators of CB violence, which is a core objective of Phase I of the project.
