The discovery of another habitable world might spell salvation to the three bitterly competing power blocs of the resource-starved 21st century; but when their representatives arrive on Jem, with its multiple intelligent species, they discover instead the perfect situation into which to export their rivalries. Subtitled, with savage irony, 'The Making of a Utopia', Jem is one of Frederik Pohl's most powerful novels.

About the author (2001)

SALES POINTS* #41 in the Millennium SF Masterworks series, a library of the finest science fiction ever written.* ┐Frederik Pohl, one of the old pros of the genre, never takes unnecessary risks. For him, science fiction is a form of play ┐ an excusable indulgence since he plays it so much better than most people.┐ The New York Times Book Review* 'The most consistently able writer science fiction has yet produced' -- Kingsley Amis* ┐One of Frederik Pohl's best novels ┐ and my personalfavourite. Complex people in tough situations on a marvelous and grittyworld ┐ who could ask for more from any novel?┐ Greg Bear
