Norwalk, CT: The Easton Press, [2003]. Octavo, frontispiece by Vincent DiFate, full leather, a.e.g. Later edition. New introduction by David Brin. "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.
