The Us Military and Outer Space: Perspectives, Plans and Programs - Space Power and Politics (Hardback)Peter L. Hays (author)
Hardback 240 Pages / Published: 31/01/2019
- Coming soon
This new book clearly explains the evolution of US military perspectives, plans, and programmes for the use of space from the 1950s to the present. It shows how and why the military's use of space has moved from the highest strategic levels down to the tactical level, enabling a new American way of war that substitutes precision for mass. It also explores the role of key individuals and organizations in shaping the military's use of space and evaluates the utility of the evolution of airpower doctrine and organizations as an analogy for the development of space power. The book would also cover recent events such as the use of space for precision bombing and network-centric warfare in Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq, as well as recent political and bureaucratic developments such as implementing the recommendations of the Rumsfeld Space Commission. This book will be of great interest to all students of space warfare, US strategic thinking and of strategic and military studies in general.
