Famine Planet by John Bowers

In a future time when countries are whole planets, each planet has its primary resource. The planet of Agricor, because of its wealth of agricultural acres, is a primary food source for many other planets…until disgruntled farm/plantation workers revolt. Although the workers are paid decent wages and live well, they are led to believe they are treated unfairly; and so burn whole plantations, thus destroying the planet’s primary resource. As in most revolts of this kind the problem does not stem from a pure desire of the heart or truly deplorable conditions. The problem derives from political manipulations; in this case, from several sources as well as other planets. But never fear! The Askelon Army is called in to curtail the rebellion and rescue everyone. Unfortunately, this time, the political ambitions of some on the planet Askelon involve other ideas. The result is a bloody and brutal war much closer to reality than any fictitious imagination.

Once again John Bowers captivates his readers with a tale that runs so parallel to actual world events one has to force themselves to remember they are reading futuristic fiction
