The world’s most populous nation views space as an asset, not only from a technological and commercial perspective but also from a political one. The repercussions of this ideology already extend far beyond Washington. China vs. the United States explores future Chinese aspirations in space and the implications of a looming space race.

Dr. Seedhouse provides background information on the fifteen-year history of the China National Space Administration and its long list of accomplishments. Sino-U.S. technological and commercial interests in space are discussed, including their interest in encouraging a potential space race. The national security objectives of the U.S. and China are also examined.

Review:

From the reviews:

“This book is exceptional for bringing together a vast amount of information on the space programmes of both the US and China in a single volume. ... provides an exhaustive catalogue of the hardware and space assets of both countries along with documenting their space command and control facilities, enabling quicker assessment of comparative capabilities. ... For anyone interested in understanding the development of China’s space technology, its probable aims and the future course of space exploration and exploitation, this book will indeed prove valuable.” (Rukmani Gupta, Journal of Defence Studies, Vol. 4 (4), October, 2010)
