Summary (From the publisher):

APE MAN, SPACE MAN

Spreading through the cosmos, Earth's colonists have almost divided into two separate species. The Swimmers, adapted to living in zero-gravity, regard themselves as the next step in evolution, scorning planetary surface dwellers as little better than apes. The latter group, the Walkers, are not about to say farewell to the planets they grew up on, and think the Swimmers are not so much advanced as deranged.

Crowell, born a Swimmer but now a Walker by choice, is caught in the middle as the two sides seem headed for war. Then he discovers the true cause of the altercation: a hidden alien race moving behind the scenes, striking at both groups. If he cannot convince the two sides of the existence of the real enemy, both branches of the human race may be headed for untimely extinction.

This full length novel, and much more, fill a huge volume from the master of science fiction adventure.
