The idea of space control and the militarization or weaponization of space has become increasingly prominent in contemporary society. This book puts the widely-held view that 'arms control in space is not feasible' to the test and aims to explore how, and under what conditions, arms control in space is feasible and could become a reality. Developing a hypothesis on the general conditions for preventive arms control, Mutschler uses three major theoretical approaches to international relations, neoliberal institutionalism, neorealism, and constructivism, and examines the unsuccessful case of arms control regarding space weapons and the successful case of arms control in the field of Anti-Ballistic Missiles (ABMs).
