“University Presses in Space” showcases a special sampling of the many works that university presses have published about space and space exploration. These books have all the hallmarks of university press publishing—groundbreaking content, editorial excellence, high production values, and striking design. The titles included here were selected by each Press as their strongest works across a variety of space-related topics, from the selling of the Apollo lunar program to the history of the Shuttle program to the future of manned space exploration and many subjects in between.
These books represent recommended reading for both space buff and specialist. Please follow the title links to each press’s web catalog for more information and to order. (At this time, we are unable to offer combined ordering and fulfillment services.) Many presses publish deeply in this field and you will discover their full offerings on their web catalogs.
