High Justice by Jerry Pournelle 1980

HIGH JUSTICE offers seven interrelated, exciting tales of humanity’s expansion to space stations, the moon, Mars, asteroids, and beyond.

From moving an iceberg from the cold reaches of the Antarctic to water-starved regions of Africa, delivering nuclear energy to small nations struggling to rise above poverty, to human conflicts and power struggles in outer space, HIGH JUSTICE celebrates the power of individuals to accomplish goals despite overwhelming obstacles.

Jerry Pournelle’s novels include the popular John Falkenberg series and, with Larry Niven, New York Times bestsellers such as LUCIFER’S HAMMER, THE MOTE IN GOD’S EYE and FOOTFALL.
