Overview

In this omnibus of Marching Through Georgia, Under the Yoke and The Stone Dogs, S.M. Stirling traces the rise of the Domination of the Draka and its long struggle with the United States and the American-led Alliance for Democracy. In this alternate history, the Americans who rejection the Revolution did not scatter to the four winds and Canada; a slight change in the course of events brought them to the new Crown Colony of Drakia instead... starting with the Cape of Good Hope and soon encompassing the whole of the right subcontinent of Southern Africa. Soon burning resentment and limitless ambition spurred the expansion of the people who called themselves the Draka.

There they built the Domination, an empire of inconceivable wealth and savagery, founded on conquest and slavery. It grew until it spanned the African continent, and then in the Great War of the early twentieth century, to include much of Asia as well. In the Eurasian War, Germany and the Soviet Union exhausted each other and the Draka stepped in, leaving the Domination triumphant from the English Channel to the China Sea. Only the United States and its allies stood between the Draka and their dream of an enslaved humanity.

By the 1990s, the Draka commanded the stuff of life itself, mastering biotechnology until they could create new species at will... and transform themselves into the Master Race of their savage dreams. The Alliance for Democracy traveled another path, into the mysteries of the physical universe and the technology based on such knowledge. The final confrontation would settle which was more powerful... or leave the earth a lifeless rock where nothing human remained but bones.

No other author of alternative history, no matter how accomplished, has crafted a world and characters so complex, so foreign and yet so familiar. Not for the faint of heart.

Needed to make the Draka loose. Not bad overall.

I came upon this novel by accident. I bought 'The Domination' and read the first story. As I came across some computer websites, I then ordered the out of print novels and was infinately horrified by their contents. I was more than alittle annoyed and disappointed at the editors unresponsible editting of this work. They effectively diminish the content and impact of the work written. It is a terrible diservice to the author and the readers alike. The story is brave in its conception and construction, in bringing to life a world that might-have-been. The horrors it employs are all too vivid in that they have occurred in human history at some time or other. This is a very well constructed work and it accomplishes its goal in helping us to visualize how bad, bad can get. A thouroughly engrossing read that requires a strong stomach as well as intellectual objectivity. Very well detailed in its construction. Stirling does a very good job in bringing this alternative history to life. And that is the source of its terrifying impact. How real it seems in ones own visualization. 'It scared the hell out of me!' WE WANT MORE!!!' P.S. A special note to the editors, 'Restore the contents to this monumental work! You have committed a very unresponsible act in your careless editing! You have effectively altered and harmed a great literary work. But you can correct this mistake if you truly have a sense of responsibility to your readers.(And the Author!!!)
