Editorial Reviews


'This is a most interesting and timely book led by one of the leading thinkers today in the fields of globalization and international business. It addresses a topic of immense potential benefit, and yet also myriad challenges, for humankind. The issues are wide-ranging: globalization, sustainability, technology, geopolitics. I urge you to read this carefully crafted book.' -- Professor John Mangan, Newcastle University, UK 'Brennan and Vecchi have succinctly captured the key pragmatic issues involved in transforming the vision of humanizing space ... NASAsponsored interplanetary logistics and supply chain projects are indications that the type of work and analysis accomplished by Brennan and Vecchi are both timely and essential.' -- Dr Shoumen Datta, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Affiliate, USA 'This book offers a comprehensive account of a not much studied industry that has not yet fully fulfilled its enormous business potential but is poised to acquire an even more central role in the 21st century global business landscape, with strong macroeconomic and political implications. An insightful reading for both academics and practitioners that will also be of value to policy-makers.' -- Professor Antonio Capaldo, University of the Sacred Heart, Milan, Italy

By Bob on March 4, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Shows a complete lack of understanding of the topic. I'd expect more from a high school student. At least when they copied material, they might have added their own insight.
