Taking a balanced look at the issues that have contributed to the decline of America's manned space program, such as the lack of political support and funding, Johnson-Freese offers not only a critique but also a plan for enhancing U.S. space security through cooperation rather than competition." "Space as a Strategic Asset underscores the danger of allowing our space program to languish and the importance of cooperation in protecting the security of our country and the world."--Jacket."
