9780688077037: Breakout into Space: Mission for a Generation

BREAKOUT INTO SPACE: MISSION FOR A GENERATION is anti-NASA, anti-space military and anti-aerospace corporations – deeply angering critics whose careers have been intertwined with these institutions for decades.

A more objective reviewer called BREAKOUT INTO SPACE "a stimulating masterpiece of advocacy" that is "a pro-science, pro-space book written from a liberal point of view with a similar readership in mind." (Jack Kirwan, Ad Astra, May 1990)

From Library Journal:

Elias, a business broker based in San Francisco, says that the American frontier experience has left the nation ill-equipped to deal with the contentious global community. The answer is to flee Earth, "and leave to other nations the rewards of foreign entanglements." In arguing for an American abandonment of Earth, the author attempts to draw on various historical comparisons, interpreting them to fit his own agenda. Billed by the publisher as a "compelling argument for the settlement of space," this is not a convincing book, nor is it very inspiring. Not recommended.
