Download or read book The Lunar Trilogy written by Edgar Rice Burroughs and published by Createspace Independent Publishing Platform. This book was released on 2017-01-16 with total page 528 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book Synopsis: From the storytelling master behind the classic Tarzan and John Carter tales comes a three-part omnibus detailing the first contact between humans and the races of The Moon, the conflict that erupts, and its explosive conclusion. In those first days, humanity basks in peace, and many of the Earth's nations disarm their militaries, paving the way for an invasion by the Kalkars, a vicious lunar race. Under the oppressive heel of Lunarian rule, the societies of Earth are reduced to impoverished ruins. Only one man is willing to fight to swing the balance of power: Julian. What follows is a saga of struggle spanning multiple generations in what stands as one of Edgar Rice Burroughs's most underrated works. The three books of the Lunar Trilogy are of particular interest to readers with an academic interest in classic science fiction, as Burroughs's saga acts as a thinly veiled critique of the direction he saw the world drifting in, and it both celebrates human freedom while expressing apprehension over the development of Communism.
