Book Description

Jan. 31 2003 140200902X 978-1402009020 2003

Space Politics and Policy: An Evolutionary Perspective provides a comprehensive survey of Space Policy. This book is organized around two themes. Space Policy is evolutionary in that it has responded to dramatic political events, such as the launching of Sputnik and the Cold War, and has undergone dynamic and evolutionary policy changes over the course of the space age. Space Policy is an integral part of and interacts with public policy processes in the United States and abroad.

The book analyzes Space Policy at several levels including historical context, political actors and institutions, political processes and policy outcomes. It examines the symbiotic relationships between policy, technology, and science; provides a review and synthesis of the existing body of knowledge in Space Policy; and identifies Space Policy trends and developments from the beginnings of the space age through the current era of the twenty-first century.

5.0 out of 5 stars great textbook for space policy Dec 15 2005
By Ryan Zelnio - Published on
Quick disclaimer in that I used this text book while attending a course led by the author in prepublished addition in 2002. That being said, I still feel to this day, 3 years later that this book is a good source for understanding the players involved in space exploration. I've referred back to it more than a few times throughout my career as someone involved in doing business with the government. The book is set up as a series of essays about a particular topic written by experts that specialize in that particular topic. A quick look at the table of contents reads as a whos who in the academic space policy world.

If understanding today's political decision making process used for government space acquisition is your goal, then I highly recommend this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Primer to Space Policy Dec 31 2005
By Jack Kennedy Jr. - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Space Politics and Policy is an essential reading to any student of space policy. The essays are well written and

concise. Careful reading of the book will provide greater context and depth to understanding more contemporary space literature. Dr. Eligar Sadeh's introduction should be kept in the forefront of the reader's mind to gain greater insight of the subsequent essays by various renowed personalities in the field.

This book helped me understand many aspects of US space policy that I simply couldn't find information on elsewhere. I used this book a lot when I was learning about space policy.
