Annotation

Post-war societies working to rehabilitate the Earth and return damaged areas to livability. Two societies are sketched in. One is controlled with the goal of placing everyone in their appropriate position, with children raised by the state and machines doing most of the productive work. The other is highly organized but children are raised in families and people do the productive work. Spiritual concerns are important in both because the war is thought to have resulted from a lack in this area.
