For those of you who are members of the World Future Society, the October 1999 issue of The Futurist, has an article on Nonlethal Weapons: pgs 34-38. It also has a counterpoint on pages 39-40.

Recomended books are:
"Future War: Non-Lethal Weapons in Twenty-First Century Warefare" John B. Alexander, St. Martin's Press, 1999
