Description

In this far- reaching foray into the millennia- long relationship between science and military power, acclaimed astrophysicist and author of Astrophysics for People in a Hurry Neil deGrasse Tyson and Avis Lang examine how the methods and tools of astrophysics have been enlisted in the service of war. Spanning early celestial navigation to satellite- enabled warfare, Accessory to War is a richly researched and provocative examination of the intersection of science, technology, industry, and power that will introduce Tyson's millions of fans to yet another dimension of how the universe has shaped our lives and world.

"Through ample research and nimble storytelling, Tyson and Lang] trace the long and tangled relationship between state power and astronomy. . . . Deep and eloquent." -- Joshua Sokol, Washington Post

"Fascinating. . . . The book's message rings like a wake- up call." -- Marcelo Gleiser, NPR
