Summary (From the publisher):

Earth was the archive of all learning, its small population dedicated to the endless task of finding and preserving new information, new truths. An isolated, sheltered haven, Earth was bound by Galactic charter to broadcast and make available freely to the entire galaxy ther greatest resource of all - knowledge.

But then the warships came.

What good then was truth against the guns of the military, the megalomania of the dictator, the crude violence of the ignorant? Trapped, defenceless, the archivists' only strategy was complete obedience to the oppressors. It seemed they could only save themselves by becoming slaves.
