This collection of articles and research encompasses most of the aspects of defense against ballistic missiles. One section focuses on the proliferation of missiles and weapons of mass destruction and the MTCR convention intended to prevent such proliferation, while another discusses the basic conceptual aspects of BMD, including BPI (Boost Phase Intercept), interception at the Exo-atmospheric stage (the US Army's THAAD and the US Navy's AEGIS) and interception at the Endo-atmospheric stage (Israel's ARROW).

The material presented in this book has been written by the foremost experts in their fields from Israel, the US and Europe, including: Haim Assa, Angelo M. Codevilla (Boston University), Yehezkel Dror (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Geoffrey E. Forden (formerly of Stanford's Center for International Security and Arms Control), Frank J. Gaffney, Jr. (Center for Security Policy in Washington), David Gates (Center for Defense and International Security Studies at Lancaster University), Moshe Guelman (Asher Space Research Institute of the Israel Institute of Technology), Uzi Landau (MK, Chairman of the Israeli Knesset's Foreign Affairs Committee), Danny Leshem, Azriel Lorber, Reuven Pedatzur, Dan Rosen (RAFAEL - the Israeli Armament Development Authority), Dany Shoham and Gerald Steinberg (BESA Center for Strategic Studies), Arieh Stav, Yoash Tsiddon-Chatto, David Vaughan (RAND Corporation).
