From the Publisher
The Eagle has landed.
Was the Apollo 11 moon landing mission really a global endeavor? How did people outside the United States view these “rocket men”? Against the political backdrop of the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union, was this, in deed, a mission “For all mankind”? Dr. Tanya Harrison and Dr. Danny Bednar talk to individuals from a variety of locations outside the United States, to see how this event resonated with them.

Humanity’s first footprints on the Moon.
These previously untold stories reveal the impact of the moon landings around the globe, and what having a “man on the moon” meant to the international community.
In this exciting new book, For All Humankind, readers will:
- Get to read interviews with eight non-Americans to get their perspectives
- Be inspired by their memories of the event as they saw it
- Have a unique opportunity to learn more about one of the most historic events in human history
"Harrison and Bednar's rich narrative serves to make the moon landing an inclusive event in human history. Told through a diverse set of characters from every continent, they deftly explores the intersectional impact of humankind's biggest step."-- "Zara Stone, journalist and author of The Future of Science is Female"
"The messages of hope and inspiration in this book are very much of a time, but they are also timeless. Maybe they speak to the ability humans have to overcome seemingly impossible challenges...but apparently only when we feel like it. As we stand at the new crossroads of space exploration and look forward, perhaps we should glance backward, too, and remember from whence we came. Because Apollo set the bar high. Very, very high."-- "Geoff Notkin, President of the National Space Society" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
