James Clay Moltz set out to provide a primer for nonspecialists on the importance of developing 'a peaceful and sustainable approach to space.' He has succeeded; Moltz's book is the best available general introduction to the past, present, and alternative futures in all areas of space activity. It is written in clear, nontechnical, and nonjargony language and sets forth in a balanced way the governance choices before us as humanity continues to develop the final frontier.(John Logsdon, Elliott School of International Affairs, The George Washington University, and founder of The George Washington University's Space Policy Institute)
Moltz has written a concise, accessible, and very timely account of the history of space development, and the possible futures we could build for ourselves.(Publishers Weekly)

James Clay Moltz provides a broad audience with a long-needed book that explains 'space basics,' the importance of space to the general public, the challenges of operating in space, and the political conundrums of international cooperation and competition in space--and in language laymen can understand. Each time I teach a course on this material--where a book like this will be very useful--my students say, 'Everyone should be aware of this information and the issues.' Now, Moltz has made that possible. His book is scholarly, readable, and fills a significant gap in the literature.(Joan Johnson-Freese, U.S. Naval War College) See all Editorial Reviews
