His work is leading General Technics to the forefront of global domination, both in the marketplace and politically---its about to take over a country in Africa. Donald Hogan is his roommate, a seemingly sheepish bookworm. But Hogan is a spy, and hes about to discover a breakthrough in genetic engineering that will change the world...and kill him. These two mens lives weave through one of science fictions most praised novels. Written in a way that echoes John Dos Passos U.S.A. Trilogy, Stand on Zanzibar is a cross-section of a world overpopulated by the billions. Where society is squeezed into hive-living madness by god-like mega computers, mass-marketed psychedelic drugs, and mundane uses of genetic engineering. Though written in 1968, it speaks of 2010, and is frighteningly prescient and intensely powerful.
