“A remarkable work, combining extensive and relevant fact with valid opinion.”

“This volume is a treasury of lucid cogent views which will enlighten and inform the decision makers and decision molders concerning aspects of a missile defense system which heretofore have been largely ignored and glossed over.”

Rear Admiral Gene R. La Rocque, USN (Ret.) Chairman Emeritus, Center for Defense Information

“I think no reasonable person can read these essays without concluding that the missile defense project menaces our national security and erodes our reputation as a global leader.”

“Every person should read this book to understand the utter folly of the missile defense plans being pursued by the United States government?’
