Flaptekst: 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 programmes for death!

Work Description

"Originally published in 1968, Stand on Zanzibar was a breakthrough in science fiction storytelling technique, and a prophetic look at a dystopian 2010 that remains compelling today. Corporations have usurped democracy, ubiquitous information technology mediates human relationships, mass-marketed psychosomatic drugs keep billions docile, and genetic engineering is routine. Universal in reach, the world-system is out of control, and we are all its victims...and its creator"--Cover p. [4].
