Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
is one of the giants of science-fiction. More than 2,000,000 of his books have been sold throughout the world. Twice Chairman of the British Interplanetary Society, he is the winner of the 1962 Kalinga Prize awarded by UNESCO for the popularisation of science.

Two centuries from now there may be men who do not owe allegiance to any nation on Earth - or even to Earth itself . . .

tells of a time when man stands upon the Moon and the planets. Tells of men now divided by the vast stretches of the Solar System, but once again torn by jealousy and fear.

With vaulting imagination Arthur C. Clarke describes life on the strange, awe-inspiring surface of the Moon - the scene of the first, fantastic battle of the space age.
