Complete with photographs and drawings from Russia's Rocket & Space Corporation Energia, this Pocket Space Guide, #8 in the series, is a condensed history of the Russian Space Program from 1946 to the present day. Fifteen years after the founding of the program, in April 1961, Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to fly in space, and the race was on. Fabulous spacecraft photos and facts illustrate and authenticate this authoritative history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great details, cool pictures! October 10, 2006
Apogee has done it again with this marvelous pocket guide to the Russian space program. From the Soviet-era moonships (with great cutaway artwork) to the mighty boosters and the trailblazing space stations, it's all here in one authoritative, well-illustrated volume. What a neat book!

-- Andrew Chaikin, author of "A Man on the Moon"

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read with rare photo images March 24, 2008
This is a useful little book. It is a good potted history of Soviet and Russian space endeavour. It is very easy to read which makes it an ideal starter for anyone new to the history of spaceflight. It gives some good insights into the byzantine world of Russian space exploration without becoming dense. The photographs are are amazing and include some very rare and informative images. My one gripe is that the technical drawings and cutaways are really too small to gain anything other than a general idea. Nonetheless as a reference, it is a good book to have.

2.0 out of 5 stars kind of blah April 2, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's interesting but the presentation is blah. It goes on like an interminable lecture and there are few worthwhile graphics, just some small black & white photos and no clear drawings or cutaways. If you know nothing about Russian space this will tell you something but I suspect there are much better titles available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide! January 20, 2007
Editor Robert Godwin has done a fantastic job in telling the story of Russian space technoligies. You would think that in this 50th year since sputnik was launched that such a book would be HUGE and cost a great deal- but Godwin has put it all together so well with photos and diagrams- many that even I haven't seen before, that people of all ages and interests will get alot out of this pocketbook.
