Mastering the Ultimate High G Round: Next Steps in the Military Uses of Spaceby Benjamin S Lambeth
Synopses & Reviews
'Under the auspices of Project Air force, RAND Corporation\'s Benjamin Lambeth has produced a thought-provoking analysis of America\'s military space challenges at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Plumbing nearly six decades of Air Force involvement in space, from the late 1940s through release of the Space Commission report in January 2001, he has pinpointed several longstanding conceptual and organizational impediments to more rapid growth of U.S. military space capabilities... The notes and bibliography for Mastering the Ultimate High Ground reveal good use of sources--books, articles, monographs, reports, documents, congressional testimony, oral histories, and unpublished presentations.
