A PROUD EMPEROR It is 2209. In the ruins of Washington, the T'ang of North America, Wu Shih, confronts the powerful old men whose sons he has kept incarcerated these last fifteen months. His foot on Lincoln's toppled granite head, he demands a pledge of loyalty. They give it, but unwillingly, and even Wu Shih knows this is not over. A RESENTFUL RIVAL For almost two centuries, the rule of the Seven has put a break on change, keeping society stable, but now a threatening ferment of forces is at work. The Seven, once unanimous in their decisions, are split. Wang Sau-leyan, the resentful young T'ang of Africa, is the dissenting voice that might yet bring things down about their ears. A NEW THREAT While deep in the Triad-ridden depths of the earth-spanning City, a new and ruthless criminal - Li Min, 'Brave Carp' - is seizing power, his fearless actions threatening to destabilize the whole system.

Review quote

Awesome. CHUNG KUO carries the hallmark of legend. * SFX * Love, tragedy, joy... all human life (and death) is here. * The Times * Colossal. A long-awaited, elaborately frightening vision of the future. * The Sunday Times * Quite extraordinary... finally delivers SF into the hands of an English Proust. -- Brian Aldiss
