Arthur C Clarke
Mars – the barren, forbidding planet that epitomises mankind’s dreams of space conquest.
From the first pioneers who looked back at Earth and saw a small blue star, to the first colonists – hand-picked scientists with the skills necessary to create life from cold desert – 'Red Mars' is the story of a new genesis. It is also the story of how Man must struggle against his own self-destructive mechanisms to achieve his dreams: before he even sets foot on the red planet, factions are forming, tensions are rising and violence is brewing … for civilization can be very uncivilized.
