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.

From the Back Cover:

“Ballard is simply a master story writer.”―Jonathan Lethem, New York Times Book Review

Compelling, disturbing, and eerily prophetic, Millennium People affirms J.G. Ballard’s legacy as, in the words of China Miéville, “probably the most original English writer of the last century.”

“Ballard is a British Philip K. Dick, heir to Conrad and H.G. Wells, in whose stories the present, taken to extremes, anticipates the future. In fact, the only complaint to be made of this bruisingly smart novel is that it has taken eight years for it to appear in the U.S.”―Publishers Weekly, starred review

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

“Reading [Millennium People] is like having all the planks that underpin your life removed one by one and being forced to confront the brutality and emptiness that lie below.”―John Preston, The Scotsman

Millennium People will compete with the best of contemporary British fiction.”―Ian Thomson, The Independent

About the Author:

J. G. Ballard was born in 1930 in Shanghai. After internment in a civilian prison camp, his family returned to England in 1946. His 1984 bestseller `Empire of the Sun' won the Guardian Fiction Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. His controversial novel `Crash' was made into a film by David Cronenberg. His autobiography `Miracles of Life' was published in 2008, and a collection of interviews with the author, `Extreme Metaphors', was published in 2012. J. G. Ballard passed away in 2009.
