The second collection of Psychotechnic League stories.
Born in the radioactive ashes of World War Three, the Institute for Applied Psychodynamics had guided Planet Earth to a period of plenty that for the first time fulfilled Science's promise. But it is the central irony of human existance that prosperity bears the seeds of its own destruction; this time not just Earth, but the entire Solar System, would endure the flames of war.
