Directive 51 (A Novel of Daybreak)[return]John Barnes[return]Ace (2011), Edition: Reprint, Paperback, 512 pages[return][return]Unnaturally deadly things, followed by fire, flood, famine... Industrial sabotage/ecoterrorism/'kill the Big System' is a really scary premise. The collapse of virtually all things technological drops the world back to the near-Dark Ages. Trying to maintain a Constitutional Government is what Directive 51 (a real thing) is about. No small thing in the absence of nationwide communication, a small group of people work to bring things back together from the brink of a second Civil War. Civilization itself is at stake.
