Description of this Book

A new space race has broken out in Asia. Few geopolitical analysts have understood this, and there is a crying need for a new book on the subject. In the past two years, spacecraft have been launched to the Moon by China, Japan, India and the US. South Korea has suddenly announced lunar plans. China's advanced human space flight program is now being challenged by a planned Indian human space capsule. Regional rivalries on Earth are spilling over into space! The situation is like a repeat of the Cold War space race, but this time, the US could lose.
