    This volume is a highly technical treatment of outer space technologies and their implications for conflict and peace that complements other studies focused more on political, economic, and social dimensions. Touching on developments in remote sensing, satellites, and space weapons, as well as the legal/treaty background of outer space and its peaceful use, it covers civil space and its implications, and international cooperation and arms control.
