Violent rebellion comes to London's middle classes.

As he searches for the truth behind the Heathrow bomb that killed his ex-wife, psychologist David Markham infiltrates a shadowy protest group based in the comfortable Chelsea Marina. Led by a charismatic doctor, it aims to rouse the docile middle classes and to free them from the burdens of civic responsibility. Soon Markham is swept up in a campaign that spirals out of control - as the cornerstones of middle England become targets and growing panic grips the capital.

This edition is part of a new commemorative series of Ballard's works, featuring introductions from a number of his admirers (including Martin Amis, Ali Smith, Hari Kunzru and China Mieville) and brand-new cover designs.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`Unsettling and subversive ... terrifically good' Sunday Times

'Terrifying and strangely haunting ... A riveting work from a writer of rare imaginative largesse, a bearer of bad tidings, unforgettably told' Daily Telegraph

'Wonderfully warped, blackly comic ... written with Ballard's customary panache, its potent mix of sex, violence and radicalism will keep his fans happy' Economist

`Ballard's instinct for the future is unnerving ... Very few writers possess this kind of intelligence: to use it with such wit is almost criminal' Independent on Sunday

`The terrifying thing about Ballard is his logic; is this science fiction or history written ahead of its time?' Len Deighton
