Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Science fiction writers often use the federation or another form of democratic and/or benign socialist government in their portrayals of future worlds and human collective groupings. But what if the future was much like, say the constant shifting of modern nations -- say... Central America, or the CIA?

Guin's story puts us in the shoes of an agent sent by an unknown government to assassinate the Communist dictator of a developed planet. He includes much of the associated brutality and repercussions of such an entity, and spares nothing in this highly sophisticated tale of future cold war warfare.
