'Lotta Viikari has written a very thoroughly researched and highly comprehensible treatise on a subject which is rather complex. Her efforts amount to an innovative contribution to the development and advancement of space law. She deserves the highest commendation for her work as exemplified by the selection of her PhD dissertation on which the book is based by the Finnish Lawyers Society for the best legal PhD dissertation in Finland Award in 2007. This book should be an essential reference for any space lawyer interested in issues of contemporary significance in space law such as space debris.'
