Not just another good entry into the "Lost Fleet" series, but also a thoughtful exercise in examining our anthropocentric biases, both towards those different from us as well as each other. This one explores different intelligent species, our academic expectations vs. reality, and how revolutions can start and be successful (hint: they don't succeed in a vacuum - forgive the space pun - but rather rely on diplomacy to provide leverage against the outside forces that want to stomp it before it can grow).

One of the best books in the series, and I cannot wait for the spin-off in October 2012.
