Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1968. Octavo, cloth. First edition. Signed and dated in the year of publication by Brunner. "Mammoth attempt to picture the world as it may well be in the early twenty-first century -- overpopulated, over automated, and torn by riots and muggings. The pop sociologist Chad C. Mulligan comments wryly on it all, and he is the nearest thing to a hero in this densely peopled book. Primarily didactic in intent, it borrows surface bravura from John Dos Passos's social realist USA trilogy (1930-1936)." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 343. Winner of the 1969 Hugo award for best novel. 1968 Nebula nominee. Winner of the 1970 British Science Fiction Association Award for best novel and the French Prix Apollo. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-175. Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2140-45. A nearly fine copy in a bright nearly fine dust jacket. One sheet folded to quarters "About John Brunner" laid in. An attractive copy. (25451). Item #25451
