Description

A Restless Peace

It is 2206. As Chung Kuo's population continues to swell, the Seven - the ruling T'angs - are forced make further concessions; laws must be relaxed and the House at Weinmar reopened. Change is coming, whether the Seven like it or not.

A Secret War

The tides of unrest unleashed by earlier wars grow faster even than the population. DeVore secretly allies with newly appointed general, Hans Ebert. It seems that DeVore's plans are coming to fruition. But Ebert has his own schemes and plots - he intends to depose the Seven and control the whole of Chung Kuo.

Review quote

Massive. Brutal. Excellent. * Guardian * Excellent... with a well-imagined universe, well-executed characters and action that doesn't let up, this is Orwell's 1984 but on an enormous canvas packed with detail * Toronto Globe and Mail * One of the masterpieces of the decade * Washington Post * Quite extraordinary... finally delivers SF into the hands of an English Proust * BRIAN ALDISS * Colossal. A long-awaited, elaborately frightening vision of the future. * Sunday Times * Love, tragedy, joy... all human life (and death) is here * The Times * Awesome. CHUNG KUO carries the hallmark of legend. * SFX *
