Space Rescue: Ensuring the Safety of Manned Spacecraft
by David J. Shayler
In Space Rescue: Lifeboats for Manned Spacecraft, author David J. Shayler reviews the development of crew survival and escape methods from the earliest designs of manned spacecraft to the current discussions of systems for ISS and on to the future prospect of sending men and women out towards Mars.

David Shayler reviews the numerous proposed systems of crew rescue and also analyses the adopted systems of ejection seats, escape towers and abort profiles during the ascent from Earth to space, including the safety requirements and contingency procedures available during various mission profiles and in trying to get the crew safely back to Earth. The author also examines the various wilderness training programmes and abort simulations used to help prepare the crews for almost any unplanned and emergency contingency they may face during their mission.

I've seen the cover picture/drawing for that book somewhere...in BIS Spaceflight? And to what does it relate to?

You may be thinking of the Erik Bergaust book released a number of years back under the title "Rescue in Space: Lifeboats for Astronauts and Cosmonauts." The two titles are very similar.

I'm not familiar with this title! (okay, I've found it at amazon; it dates back to 1974).

But it was more the cover picture that intrigued me.
