224 pages Science Fiction. Earth is savaged by WWIII. The only surviors are in separate space stations manned by the Russians and the Americans. This is story of how they learn to co-opperate and go to Mars. Full of 1970's angst and distrust. The book acts as window into what we avoided during the Cold War and what may happen if we go back to the bad old days of nuclear politics.
Fast paced read of apocalyptic work. Provided some rare insights into man's philosophical place in the universe, or at least a great introduction into various ways of looking at the question.
I'm glad it glossed over some details, giving me more signal than noise.
