The world faces numerous security concerns—from nuclear proliferation to terrorism to climate change—that cannot be resolved by one nation alone. And unilateral military force will not defeat transnational threats. In this era of global challenges, one issue requires urgent attention that is “out of this world”: the militarization of space.

In Outer Space: Weapons, Diplomacy, and Security, leading Russian experts analyze the space weapons programs of world powers. As countries try to avoid a catastrophic new arms race in space, the book details the political, military, technical, and legal problems confronting negotiators attempting to prevent—or at least control—the weaponization of space.
