$IThe Chinese Space Program: A Mystery Within a Maze$I is the first unclassified, comprehensive analysis of Chinese efforts in space. It not only describes the activities the Chinese are engaged in, but
does so within the context of Chinese political, economical, and cultural parameters critical to realistic and pragmatic policy analysis. Projections are then offered from the information provided concerning where China
might be going in the future and equally important, what policy actions the United States might take to avoid a confrontational stance with China and to encourage Beijing to build a more stable, cooperative regime.
