From the Publisher:

"The Uplift books are as compulsive reading as anything ever published in the genre."
--The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction

From the Inside Flap:

David Brin's Uplift novels are among the most thrilling and extraordinary science fiction ever written. "Sundiver, Startide Rising, and "The Uplift War--a "New York Times bestseller--together make up one of the most beloved sagas of all time. Brin's tales are set in a future universe in which no species can reach sentience without being "uplifted" by a patron race. But the greatest mystery of all remains unsolved: who uplifted humankind?
The Terran exploration vessel "Streaker has crashed in the uncharted water world of Kithrup, bearing one of the most important discoveries in galactic history. Below, a handful of her human and dolphin crew battles armed rebellion and a hostile planet to safeguard her secret--the fate of the Progenitors, the fabled First Race who seeded wisdom throughout the stars.

Book Description Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. Limited Edition; 1st Printing. This edition is limited to 375 numbered copies signed by the author. This is copy #308. This book is in Near Fine condition and has a Near Fine dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean and the slipcase is in Near Fine condition. "Brin's Jewish heritage is the source of two other strong themes in his works. Tikkun Olam ("repairing the world", i. E. People have a duty to make the world a better place) is originally a religious concept, but Brin, like many non-orthodox Jews, has adapted this into a secular notion of working to improve the human condition, to increase knowledge, and to prevent long-term evils. Brin has confirmed that this notion in part underscores the notion of humans as "caretakers" of sentient-species-yet-to-be, as he explains in a concluding note at the end of Startide Rising; and it plays a key role in The Uplift War, where the Thennanin are converted from enemies to allies of the Terragens (humans and other sapients that originated on Earth) when they realize that making the world a better place and being good care-takers are core values of both civilizations.
