Annotation

Eutopia and dystopia. This short novel focuses on the antics of one man who becomes fabulously wealthy, is rejected by the woman he wants, and in vengeance brings about a war with the U. S. attacked by the nations of the Earth and Mars. While the US, which has grown to include all of North and Central America, wins, New York City is destroyed. Early in the book, the world is depicted in eutopian terms both politically and technologically with New York City free of crime as a result of eugenic advances. All other nations are depicted as advanced and the only reason for their cooperation against the U. S. is that it is even more advanced.
