With Commentary by Mike Simpson, Executive Director of the Secure World Foundation. Daniel Deudney is Associate Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University. He is the author of Bounding Power: Republican Security Theory from the Polis to the Global Village (Princeton, 2007), which won the Book of the Decade award in 2010 from the International Studies Association.
Deudney explores “space expansionist” thought over the last half century and argues that the consequences of the human pursuit of space exploration have been and could be very undesirable, even catastrophic.
