Starship Troopers

Science Fiction by Robert A. Heinlein

Blurb

Juan Rico signed up with the Federal Service on a lark, but despite the hardships and rigorous training, he finds himself determined to make it as a cap trooper. In boot camp he will learn how to become a soldier, but when he graduates and war comes (as it always does for soldiers), he will learn why he is a soldier. Many consider this Hugo Award winner to be Robert Heinlein's finest work, and with good reason. Forget the battle scenes and high-tech weapons (though this novel has them)--this is Heinlein at the top of his game talking people and politics.

Auch wenn es in dem Buch um Krieg im Weltraum geht, so ließt es sich doch auch ein wenig wie Utopia: Heinlein stellt sich eine neue Form von Politik und ein noch neuere Form der Ethik und Moral vor. Zwischen solchen tiefgründigen Passagen gibt es Weltraumaction, Schlachten und Science Fiction.
