About this title:

Synopsis: The Amplitur searched the universe for intelligent species to join them in the Amplitur Purpose. But the Weave, a union of races, fought for thousands of years to stay independent. Now a Weave scouting party had discovered Earth, and humanity had to pick sides, for the Amplitur were close behind.

From the Publisher: I had just casually picked up A CALL TO ARMS to try out Foster's writing, and was engaged immediately. This is a classic SF yarn in the old style of bad guy aliens vs. good guy aliens, with humans holding a special place between them. The twist is that the special human qualities the aliens value are just the same qualities we abhor in ourselves. So while you enjoy the classic battles across the galaxy and interspecies intrigue, you have a very contemporary and critical view of humanity. The style is fluid and clear, the pace is fast and plotting well thought out--very professional. We've reprinted Foster backlist titles for years, and this new series inspired me go back and read them.

--Steve Palmer, Director of Production Mass Market

Book Description Del Rey/Ballantine, 1991. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, 8vo, 341pp, black paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine, Fine hardcover, in Fine pictorial dustjacket. "For eons, the Amplitur had searched space for intelligent species, each of which was joyously welcomed into the fulfillment of the Amplitur Purpose. Whether it wanted to or not. When the Amplitur and their allies stumbled upon the Weave, the first union of races the Amplitur had ever encountered, the Purpose seemed poised for a great leap forward. But the Weave's surprising unity also gave it the ability to fight the Amplitur and their cause. And fight it did - for thousands of years. Will Dulac was a New Orleans composer who thought the tiny reef off Belize would be the perfect spot to moor his boat in peace and quiet and finish his latest symphony. He was seeking solitude. What he got was a group of alien visitors - a scouting party in search of allies for the Weave. Once over his initial shock, Will tried to convince the aliens that Man was fundamentally peaceful and wanted no part of their interstellar war. But the aliens saw evidence to the contrary - evidence that made Humanity unique among all the known races. Will hoped to keep the aliens' mission and even their presence a secret, but the covertly recruited Humans proved even better at combat than the Weave could have wished. And when Will saw what alien war was really like, he understood that Human involvement would destroy the race. But by then, it didn't matter. The Amplitur had discovered Earth." - from the dj flap.
