Naval War College Review


We are a nation inextricably linked to space. Every instrument of our national power—diplomatic, information, mili- tary, economic—relies to some degree on access to and unimpeded use of space. Space Warfare: Strategy, Princi- ples and Policy uses this fact to illustrate its author’s point that despite an in- creasing reliance on space capabilities, the United States has yet to develop a comprehensive space-power theory. Klein has written extensively on space- power theory, and this book builds upon many of his previous works, ad- dressing the need for a national space strategy that adequately links space op- erations with national interests.
