One of the most popular novels. . .

. . .by the late Allen Drury, this "novel of space and politics" is also a social commentary on the decay of society during the 1960's. In addition, Drury's understanding of communism (and communism's defenders in the media and union leadership) was ahead of his time.

Granted, the book is dated now, but at the time of its printing, it bordered on prophetic.

As an aside, I strongly suspect that Mr. Drury was deeply saddened at what didn't happen with the US Space program. His "moon landing" was only a few years ahead of reality; ditto with his "space station".

An enjoyable read.
