The Mars Trilogy: Red Mars, Green Mars and Blue Mars

Review

Cheating as the trilogy is three rather than one book. The trilogy tells the tail of the colonization and terraforming of Mars, in particular the ways in which the colonists organize themselves both to achieve the project and to create a new society. The books provide a pretext of a series of debates about prescient ecological, organizational and political issues. You could call it the documentation of a mega-project.
