The red planet is red no longer, as Mars has become a perfectly inhabitable world. But while Mars flourishes, Earth is threatened by overpopulation and ecological disaster. Soon people look to Mars as a refuge, initiating a possible interplanetary conflict, as well as political strife between the Reds, who wish to preserve the planet in its desert state, and the Green "terraformers". The ultimate fate of Earth, as well as the possibility of new explorations into the solar system, stand in the balance.

This third installment in the Mars trilogy is every bit as good as the first two, with ample doses of scientific detail, a rich cast of characters, lively political/sociological debate, and dramatic action. Robinson does an outstanding job of describing the physical, emotional and psychological landscape of Mars (as well as quite a few other destinations within our solar system) as a dangerous but survivable environment that may one day be habitable and even enjoyable. While I would have to admit that the scenario he presents is undoubtedly overly optimistic and even idealistic, if you prefer to be inspired rather than depressed then you should enjoy this book.

The stunning conclusion to the visionary trilogy. Let's your imagination soar as you sail the stormy seas of Mars in the distant future.

explaines in detail the politics and organization of a potential Martian government that is radically different than any that earth has yet to see.

Great trilogy set in the future after the colonization of Mars. Great characters and plotting. Well paced and a great read.
