RUR & War with the Newts, Paperback / softback Book

RUR & War with the Newts Paperback / softback

Part of the S.F. Masterworks series


Written against the background of the rise of Nazism, War With the Newts concerns the discovery in the South Pacific of a sea-dwelling race, which is enslaved and exploited by mankind.

In time they rebel, laying siege to the strongholds of their former masters in a global war for supremacy. R.U.R., or Rossum's Universal Robots, seen by many as a modern interpretation of the 'golem' myth, is regarded as the most important play in the history of SF.

It introduced the word 'robot' and gave the genre one of its most enduring tropes.
