Annotation

Sequel to 1893 Jones, set a hundred years after the conclusion of that novel. Peace has existed throughout the period and social and technological changes have brought about a world-wide eutopia. The bulk of the novel is concerned with the re-start of conflict and its defeat, followed by a catastrophe that wipes out human civilization.
