From the Publisher:
The Foundation novels of Isaac Asimov are one of the great masterworks of science fiction. Unsurpassed for their unique blend of nonstop action, daring ideas, and extensive world-building, they chronicle the struggle of a courageous group of men and women to preserve humanity’s light against an inexorable tide of darkness and violence.
Led by its founding father, the great psychohistorian Hari Seldon, and taking advantage of its superior science and technology, the Foundation has survived the greed and barbarism of its neighboring warrior-planets. Yet now it must face the Empire—still the mightiest force in the Galaxy even in its death throes. When an ambitious general determined to restore the Empire’s glory turns the vast Imperial fleet toward the Foundation, the only hope for the small planet of scholars and scientists lies in the prophecies of Hari Seldon.
But not even Hari Seldon could have predicted the birth of the extraordinary creature called The Mule—a mutant intelligence with a power greater than a dozen battle fleets…a power that can turn the strongest-willed human into an obedient slave.
From the Paperback edition.
A Russian-born American novelist, versifier, critic, and popular scientist, Asimov is best known for his science fiction. The author and his family emigrated to the U.S. in 1923. His parents allowed him to read only non-fiction books as a child, which initiated his lifelong interest in science. Asimov had his first book published in 1951 and the following year, under the pseudonym Paul French, he published his first children's book. The author of over 350 fiction and non-fiction books, Asimov wrote 10 hours a day, seven days a week. Asimov also earned a Ph.D. in chemistry at Columbia University, and was as respected an academic biochemist as he was a science fiction writer. An indefatigable lecturer and contributor to newspapers and magazines, Asimov came to be increasingly regarded as a scientific seer, and was responsible for adding the term "robotics" to the English language.
