'Russia in Space - The New Frontier' looks at the Russian space programme in 2007, 50 years after Sputnik. Brian Harvey covers all the key elements of the current Russian space programme, from manned to unmanned missions; the various types of unmanned applications programmes; the military programme; the infrastructure of production, launch centres and tracking; the commercialization of the programme and its relationship with western companies; and the programme in a comparative global context. Strong emphasis is placed on Russia’s future space intentions and on new programmes and missions in prospect, such as Soyuz in Kourou, Kliper, Phobos Grunt and the Angara launcher. End matter contains a list of all missions since January 1991 to December 2006.

It has been released in Europe. It looks like a revamp of a previous book by the same author & publisher titled: "Russia In Space: The Failed Frontier?" (2001).
