9780099191100: Stand on Zanzibar

A Hugo-award-winning novel of over-population, poitical struggles, and warped ethics. "A quite marvelous projection in which John Brunner landscapes a future that seems the natural foster child of the present...Everything compounds into a fractured tomorrow--from the population explosion to Marshall McLuhan to the Territorial Imperative to the underground press..."--Kirkus Reviews

From the Back Cover:

Donald Hogan was a mild-mannered student, a dilettante intellectual--at least that's what everyone was supposed to think he was. But Donald knew otherwise. He knew he was a spy.

But what Donald didn't know was that in a world overpopulated by the billions--in a society squeezed into hive-living madness by megabrain computers, mass-marketed psychedelics, and eugenics--where everyone was struggling for life--he himself was programmed for death!

About the Author:

John Brunner (1934-1995) was a prolific British SF writer. In 1951, he published his first novel, Galactic Storm, at the age of just 17, and went on to write dozens of novels under his own and various house names until his death in 1995 at the Glasgow Worldcon. He won the Hugo Award and the British Science Fiction Award for Stand on Zanzibar (a regular contender for the 'best SF novel of all time') and the British Science Fiction Award for The Jagged Orbit.

Book Description Hutchinson / Arrow, 1978. Soft cover. Book Condition: Good: Moderate signs of wear. Cover Art: Uncredited (illustrator). They'll tell you that the whole human race could be put on the 147-square-mile Isle of Wight. True? Maybe in 1918. Today you'd need the 221-square-mile Isle of Man. And by 2010, something bigger still - something like 640-square-mile Zanzibar. By 2010 there are more than seven billion people crowding the world. A world of acceleratubes, intelligent computers and mass-marketed psychedelics. A terrifying world of human machines where a quiet man can be programmed to kill. Bookseller Inventory # 11.001.00634
