Publisher Description

The Galaxy Is A Bad NeighborhoodThe U.S. Space Force was in big trouble. Not from the Russians-we'd whipped them years ago, and not from the Japanese; they had quite wisely decided against mounting a serious military presence in space. Even the Chinese weren't a threat for the near term. No, the threat wasn't external at all. The United States itself was turning inward, forgetful of the heritage that had made it great. Soon the Space Force would be called entirely back to Earth, and there would be nothing American in space save for the comsats that had started it all so long ago.That's when the aliens arrived. Though themselves entirely human, handsome as gods and pacifist to a fault, they bore bad tidings. Following on behind were creatures of an entirely different nature: warlike, ugly as toads, and with nothing but military conquest on their hive mind. Suddenly the United States Space Force had something even worse to worry about than going out of business . . . .At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Entertaining with political fallacies

Entertaining sci fi but stupid politically/economically.

Vgggffyhnbgdyfv ,

Great book, politics accurate extrapolations.

Someone mentioned in another review that the economics and politics are off but it was otherwise a good book - the systems displayed are just the obvious next steps in our political system.

Sad but true, don’t hate because you don’t like outcomes.

Butterwaffle ,

Entertaining political foresight

It seems to capture the way the political scene is unfolding, but the science part of the sci-fi is weak (Inaudible infrasonic alien communications? They would have to talk really slow to have a decent bitrate. Long necked aliens 1.5-3x our size with a single large eye? what, do the wobble back and forth for depth perception?) and the characters are not terribly well developed.
