As political and military leaders ponder the future of space operations, the time has come to frame propositions regarding space power. Specifically, the author seeks to answer the question, "What is the nature of space power?" Two points come immediately to the forefront of this work. First, space power is different from airpower even though both share the vertical dimension of warfare. Second, space operations have matured to a point wherein valid and unique propositions regarding space power are identifiable. The objective of this work is to stimulate discussions and encourage those who do not yet understand or appreciate the nature of space power in modern warfare

This book provides an in-depth investigation of the concept of space power and devises a novel conceptual framework for empirically measuring and comparing different typologies of space actors on the basis of clearly defined criteria. In turn, the book identifies a comprehensive set of conditions required to achieve and maintain the status of space power and explores the main political, security, and socio-economic stakes involved. Building on this basis, the book conducts a comparative assessment of the major space actors, the underlying aim of which is to examine Europe’s relative position in the space arena and put into perspective its proclaimed goal to assert itself as a space power, with all of the means and resources this would entail. Given its scope, the book represents a valuable and versatile tool to support European decision-making and offers key insights for executives, space professionals and scholars alike.

"This thesis is an initial attempt to clarify and further conceptualize cyberspace as an Air Force warfighting domain. This thesis follows two previous Ten Propositions works regarding airpower and spacepower, respectively written by Col Phillip S. Meilinger (1995) and Maj Michael V. Smith (2001). As the United States military explores its future regarding cyberspace operations, the time has come to frame similar propositions regarding cyberpower. Specifically, this thesis seeks to answer the question: What is the nature of cyberpower? It also tests the notion that cyberpower is simply a continuation or extension of airpower. Two points come immediately to the forefront of this work. First, cyberpower is different from airpower in that it encompasses much more than the vertical dimension of warfare. Second, cyberspace operations are quickly maturing to a point wherein propositions regarding cyberpower are worth discussing. The ten propositions presented here do not represent a complete list. The method used to derive these propositions involved literary research that resulted in a long list. The list evolved over eight months during brainstorming sessions with several cyberspace professionals culminating in this refined list of the ten most salient propositions. There were many ways to present the Ten Propositions Regarding Cyberpower. This work cites each proposition with its supporting material immediately following. The objective of this thesis is to stimulate discussions and help those who do not yet understand or appreciate the nature of cyberpower in modern warfare."--Abstract.

This new study considers military space strategy within the context of the land and naval strategies of the past. Explaining why and how strategists note the similarities of space operations to those of the air and naval forces, this book shows why many such strategies unintentionally lead to overemphasizing the importance of space-based offensive weaponry and technology. Counter to most U.S. Air Force doctrines, the book argues that space-based weapons don’t imbue superiority. It examines why both air and naval strategic frameworks actually fail to adequately capture the scope of real-world issues regarding current space operations. Yet by expanding a naval strategic framework to include maritime activities—which includes the interaction of land and sea—the breadth of issues and concerns regarding space activities and operations can be fully encompassed. Commander John Klein, United States Navy, uses Sir Julian Corbett’s maritime strategy as a strategic springboard, while observing the salient lessons of other strategists—including Sun Tzu, Clausewitz, Jomini, and Mao Tse-tung—to show how a space strategy and associated principles of space warfare can be derived to predict concerns, develop ideas, and suggest policy not currently recognized. This book will be of great interest to all students and scholars of military and strategic studies and to those with an interest in space strategy in particular.

"This is the third volume of the Centre for Foreign Policy Studies' highly acclaimed and well received issue-and-debate series addressing contemporary topics in security and defence studies. Twenty-five scholars and policy-makers respond to Michael Friend's intriguing article about the search for WMD in Iraq. Even prior to the 2nd Iraqi war, non-proliferation has been the foremost concern discussed throughout international diplomacy. From the treaties we sign to control it, to the intelligence we use to verify it, to the pre-emptive actions we take to prevent it, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction has become the foremost threat to international peace and stability. The contributors to this volume debate the merits of arms control treaties, address the short-comings and increased requirements of the intelligence community, and address whether a viable international system can be founded upon a doctrine of pre-emptive war. The result is an informative and policy relevant contribution to the foremost security issue of the new security environment"--Provided by publisher.

"Major issues have plagued the US military space community for years. Foremost among these issues is the relationship between air and space. At a recent airpower conference, military leaders from the western powers presented discussions of airpower and space issues with a pervasive underlying assumption: that the next logical step from the exploitation of airpower and space capabilities was the merging of the two environments toward the exploitation of aerospace power. The current distinction between air and space rests on the fiscal and technical inability to merge them an inability that is soon to be overcome. Conferees dismissed environmental distinctions between the two on the grounds that there is no absolute boundary between air and space In Paths of Heaven, the chapter titled Ascendant Realms: Characteristics of Air and Space Power, I examine this assumption from the perspective of 21 different military characteristics and conclude it to be invalid. The reasons extend well beyond an inability fiscally and technically to merge the two realms."--Abstract.

New Perspectives on African-Centred Education in Canada is the first study of African-centred schooling in the Canadian context. Starting with an in-depth look at the creation of an Africentric public school within the Toronto District School Board, it tells the story of the movement behind that school's creation and lays bare a rich history of activism, organization, and resistance on the part of numerous African Canadian communities and their allies. The book presents a critical overview of the issues facing racialized students and offers a unique vision of African-centred education as a strategy for student engagement and social transformation. The authors, well known public commentators on African-centred education in Canada, offer a comprehensive analysis of the media controversy surrounding African-centred schools, as well as candid reflections on the personal challenges of fighting a largely unpopular battle.
