Space law is an area of International Law that has developed massively in the last fifty years. Francis Lyall, Emeritus Professor of Public Law and Paul B. Larsen, Adjunct Professor and until recently a senior lawyer in the Office of the US Secretary of Transportation, have been involved with it since their days at the Institute of Air and Space Law, McGill University, Montreal in 1963-1964 and both teach space law at their respective universities.

This book gathers together their experience in readable form and, with an extensive citation of the literature of space law, its discussion provides an excellent source for both student and practitioner.

This treatise, authored by two of the leading experts in the complicated and rapidly-developing field of outer space law, is a unique asset. It is both comprehensive (covering a wide swath of public and private law issues) and current (providing both the historical background and the up-to-the-minute details of contemporary controversies), and its many footnotes provide citations to documents that are both obscure and important. It is sure to become an indispensable component of any space lawyer's bookshelf.
