Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conflict: a basic human instinct, helping humankind evolve even while threatening the very existence of the species . . . an instinct that will be as much a part of the future as it is now and always has been. For all the glories of war-the defeat of evil, the promise of freedom, justice, protection of the innocent, the righting of wrongs, technological innovation, heroism-there are also the horrors: individual grief, mass destruction, the elimination of entire cultures and great achievments, injustice, villainy, the annihilation of the innocent, and pain beyond bearing. War and Space offers the ultimate speculation on the future of warfare-stories of insectoid anguish, genetically-engineered diplomats who cannot fail, aliens plundering humanity, a weaponized black hole-scenarios of triumph and defeat, great heroism and vile depravity . . . and more.

Synopsis:

The history of the world is the history of war. From feats of valor and loyalty to hideous violence and carnage, the human species has always been its own best rival - and worst enemy. But out beyond the stars, the ultimate enemy awaits. The world's future - the future of the universe itself - lies in the hands of the warriors who must use the weapons, take on the missions, make the decisions, assume the risk, and defeat the menaces, alien or otherwise, who would dare try to conquer
