Read full description of the books:
2381. Man had attained Utopia. War, starvation, crime and birth control had been eliminated. Life was totally fulfilled and sustained with mammoth skyscrapers hundreds of floors high. It was blessed to have children. Contemplation of controlling families was heretical. And there were methods of treatment for heresy, the most radical, being death. And there was total sexual freedom. "Night walking" was expected of men and women never refused. Only madness could inspire thoughts of privacy, faithfulness and trust. Since the need for the outdoors and travel had been eliminated, then surely so had the desire. Thought of wanderlust were sick, to speak of it was heretical. And there were methods of treatment for heresy. But life was a Utopia!
There were a few in Urbmon 116 who were tortured by desire for some individual quality to their lives. The perfectly patterned existence of the Urbmons seemed flawed. Young Siegmund Kluver was destined to become one of the omnipotent leaders of Urbmon 116. Yet he finds himself assailed by a nameless doubt and fear. He searches throughout the vast complex of the Urbmon for some clue to his restless nature, knowing is whole future may be in jeopardy.
Jason Quevedo, an historian, discovers ancient history acts as a catalyst to revealing his true character - but the price demanded for such knowledge is a cruel one.
And Michael Statler escapes the confines of Urbmon 116 only to learn that the freedom of soul and spirit create their own prisons.
Robert Silverberg has fashioned a science fiction novel which takes one of the world's most pressing problems and projects it to a fantastic, but frightening conclusion. He also poses the great rhetorical question - is the gift of life more precious than the quality of the individual?
