BATTLEGROUNDS OF THE FUTURE
Robert A. Heinlein, today's leading science fiction author, provides a feast of thrilling reading in this omnibus volume which offers one of his best novels, plus two exciting short stories.
If This Goes On—
An evil Dictator holds the United States of 2100 A.D. in his grip—through clever use of advanced science and psychology and a dedicated military clique. Soldier John Lyle joins the underground and boldly risks his life in the bitter battle to overthrow the evil tyranny—and to save his girl from the Dictator’s sinister desire.
A born rebel of the future, who refuses to obey the laws of his country, is banished to a lawless land.
When a modest country boy is sent on a mission to build a space station on an asteroid, he proves he is a mathematical genius.
This is a bonanza of science fiction by the writer of whom the N.Y. Herald Tribune said: "No one else even comes close to him in consistently and successfully fusing scientific thinking with fictional form."
