Printed with a design by Alex Wells. In 1941, Isaac Asimov, a young scientist and writer, was inspired by Edward Gibbon's History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire? And by contemporary global politics? To write an epic for his own age. He set out to tell of'the fall of the Galactic Empire and the return of feudalism, written from the viewpoint of someone in the secure days of the Second Galactic Empire'.
The result was The Foundation Trilogy, an extraordinary science fiction epic that raises profound questions. Why do empires rise and fall? How is society best run? Asimov explores these ideas in a multi-layered, ingenious story that is as gripping today as when it was first published. Please see our other listings for more Folio Society items.
