Synopsis: From the back cover of the Bantam first paperback: "Tomorrow? Here is a shocking but realistic picture of America in the twenty-first century - a wild, chaotic America, but a very possible America. An America where people pay protection instead of taxes - where polo is played in jeeps with 50-caliber machine guns. An America full of the wonders of tomorrow driven by passions that are ageless."
