Earned BA (Biology) from California State University at Northridge, Filosofie Kandidat (Organic Chemistry) from University of Stockholm, Sweden, and Ph.D. (International Relations) from University of Southern California.

Recent Accomplishments

  • In August 2014, finished manuscript for the monograph “We Need to Hit Hard”: Saddam’s Use of Chemical Weapons against Revolutionary Iran and Rebellious Iraqi Kurds," which is currently being considered for publication by several presses. Unlike previous publications that focus on Iraq’s acquisition and employment of chemical weapons, the basis for much of the information in this monograph is the cache of captured Iraqi government documents, audio tapes, and video tapes stored at the Conflict Records Research Center in the National Defense University.

  • I worked on (with co-editors Casey Mahoney and James Toppin) an edited monograph on the history of the anti-plague system in the U.S.S.R. and Russia titled Stories of the Soviet Anti-Plague System, which was published in autumn 2013.

  • Completed a book on which I had been working on for 11 years: Milton Leitenberg and Raymond A. Zilinskas, The Soviet Biological Weapons Program: A History, (Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press, 2012).

  • Wrote a film review for the first time: Raymond A. Zilinskas, “Contagion: A Movie Pandemic Versus the Reality of Public Health,” WMD Junction, September 23, 2011; www.nonproliferation.org.

  • Collated 132 entries to create a unique reference source: Rebecca Katz and Raymond A. Zilinskas (eds.), Encyclopedia of Bioterrorism Defense, 2nd Edition, (Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley and Sons, Inc., 2011).

  • Had an article published in Scientific American: Ken Coleman and Raymond A. Zilinskas, “Fake Botox, Real Threat,” Scientific American 302(6):84-89 (June 2010).
