Folio Society THE FOUNDATION TRILOGY Isaac Asimov With slipcover
The Foundation Trilogy
Illustrated by Alex Wells
Introduced by Paul Krugman
Why do empires rise and fall? How is society best run? Can history be predicted? Isaac Asimov explores these fascinating ideas in a multi-layered, ingenious story that is as gripping today as when it was first published in 1942. Drawing on contemporary politics, ancient history and mathematics, Isaac Asimov’s masterpiece explores the decline of the Galactic Empire; a civilisation that ruled nearly 25 million inhabited planets.
This unique three-volume edition is introduced by leading economist and Nobel Prize-winner Paul Krugman, while the twelve startling, futuristic artworks have been created by talented British illustrator Alex Wells, who also illustrated the sell-out Folio edition of I, Robot.
