    1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.

Berkeley historian McDougall has managed to come up with a narrative history of the race for space that has a novel structure and theme, no mean feat these days. Structurally, the book alternates between the development of space research in the US and the USSR. What's new is that McDougall begins with the USSR&#;for, thematically, he sees the Soviets as the first example of sustained state.
