Interplanetary – A History of the British Interplanetary Society
This volume provides a single history of the Society, drawn from a number of sources, each written from the perspective of the various authors and their involvement with the Society. Other histories could have been written from different perspectives, perhaps by commentators who have no intimate links with the Society at all. What marks out the accounts contained in this book is the proximity of their authors to the events in question. In this respect the book bears unique witness to the Society, its evolution and its achievements over 75 years.
