From the Publisher
“Builder became involved in this study in connection with work he was doing at the RAND Corporation for the USAF Air War College… What is remarkable about The Icarus Syndrome is that the USAF has finally sponsored a self-analysis that is readable in style and provocative in nature. Upper-division undergraduates and above.”
"The juxtaposition of theory and the operational principles is superbly managed in the framework of the strategic questions about the future of air power.à This book is strongly recommended for those who think or should think in terms of shaping air and space power for the future."
—Harry H. Almond, Jr., The Friday Review of Defense Literature
"The Icarus Syndrome is an intellectually engaging work and particularly timely.à The author's conclusions are skillfully developed and clearly articulated."
