Gladiator-at-Law

by Frederik Pohl, C. M. Kornbluth
Release date: 1955
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Caution! You are about to enter a world...

...where all engineering ingenuity has been employed for public spectacles of torture and death.

...where the stock market operated with pari-mutuel machines.

...where a court clerk transcribes testimony on punch cards, then feeds it to a jury machine.

...where the dream real-estate development of today has become a cracked-concrete savage jungle.

In this world, young lawyer Charles Mundin battles a great combine of corporate interest - battles them in board meetings and in dark alley - in a struggle that lays bare some brutal promises about the future... promises we are beginning to make right now.
