The Jagged Orbit

by John Brunner


The Jagged Orbit

Like his previous book, Stand on Zanzibar, this book is also set in a dystopian future and explores some of the same issues and themes with an emphasis on the effects of the military-industrial complex on daily life. It also deals with issues in a way that is as relevant today as it was then, most particularly race relations in the United States and exploitation of the underclasses.
