Ze`ev Wolfson

Ze`ev Wolfson was born in 1944 in the USSR. He received a Ph.D. degree in Environmental Policy from Moscow State University in 1978. The work, The Destruction of Nature in the Soviet Union (under the pseudonym Boris Komarov) was published in 1979 in the West in eight editions and in seven languages. The book was awarded the Gambrinus European Award (Italy) for “Best Book on Ecology” in 1983. After the Chernobyl disaster he focused his interests on nuclear technology and chemical and biological weapons in the former Soviet Union states and Russia, and on the risk of proliferation of dangerous technologies to the Middle East countries.
