Synopsis: Controversy arises over the Diaspora Project, a program designed to carry ten thousand men and women to a new life outside the solar system, and the Homeworld movement, led by the mysterious Jeremiah, threatens to stop it no matter what the cost. Reprint.
From Publishers Weekly:
The diaspora has begun: the spending of Earth's wealth to send STL generation ships to distant stars. Starstruck volunteers queue up hoping to be selected for one of the five ships, but others condemn this dispersal of materials and people needed to help Earth recover from ecological damage. Jeremiah "for the Homeworld" leads the rebels with acts of sabotage calculated to slow the exodus and turn world opinion against it. Meanwhile, Thomas Tidwell, official historian of the Diaspora Project, is tracking down a dark secret that hides the true reason for the migration. Kube-McDowell ( Enigma ) presents the world of 2095 through the two viewpoints of Mikhail Dryke, a security agent trying to track down Jeremiah, and Christopher McCutcheon, a project worker and folk singer who gets caught in the gears. The society is believable, socially and technically, the writing keeps a steady pace, building toward the climax, and the secret proves to be quite imaginative.
