Space and National Security

By Paul B. Stares
Brookings, 1987
220 pp. $28.95

This is an informative survey, although its title is broader than its subject: it is really about military satellites and weapons designed to destroy them. Other than recognizing that the techniques for intercepting satellites and missiles are similar, it says little about space-based strategic defense. Its brief is a caution against a race in antisatellite weapons and in favor of arms control in space.
