If anything, I´ve tried to use the long-sought unification of all space and time to think about science in the extremely distant future (in a unified universe, this must be possible). Necessarily, this disregards to some extent both scientific and fundamentalist ideologies of the present, but at the same time I´ve based my thoughts on what science tells us today. Though its primary concern is science, the following book is relevant to world peace because it concludes that everyone´s life is scientifically unified with all other life beyond the range of our senses and experiences (but within the range of our understanding).< Less

Mark Clifton addresses the issue of racial abuse head on with this excellent tale. On a distant mining colony, humans have only one native source of food—the bipedal, humanoid... More > "Goonie."

They seemed to have no culture, and they let themselves be slaughtered without so much as a peep of protest. This tale is that of a man wracked with conscience. This farmer, who was the first to train a Goonie to perform advanced mathematical services, is convinced that the slaughter of Goonies is wrong. To champion this cause, he is willing to put his life on the line, though it turns out that a female sociologist from Earth employs better, non-lethal methods to effect change, or at least to set the world on the course of change.< Less
