American Revolt: By 2090 almost half of Americans are on welfare. Brilliant, talking computers have stolen most service and middle management jobs, while exploding populations in the southern hemisphere monopolize dumb factory work. And aquifers dry, world-wide, causing food shortages. A blond young "welfie" vows to remedy all this. He enters the Marines and then leads a revolution.

As 2100 dawns, revolutionary America is governed by a triumvirate of "welfies". The military member of the trio is a young ex-Marine, Ben Bjorn. While China demands food relief and threatens war, Europe pleads for military help against the Turkish-led Moslems. As if those two perils weren't enough, rebellion simmers below the feet of the Welfie government. Copying Eisenhower's example in the Cold War, Bjorn leads an American army to Europe's defense. In early spring, the Moslems cross the Bosphorus into Europe and throw back part of Bjorn's army.
This volume is the third and concluding book in the military science fiction trilogy, The Pacification of Earth. It recounts the adventures of a young ex-Marine in unifying the globe and initiating essential population, pollution, and governing reforms. He defeats a Chinese thrust for fertile land via Mongolia, fights off insurrections and attempted assassinations, and finds love.
This is the fourth volume in The Pacification of Earth, speculative science fiction series of novels. The author brings China and India to join the developed world in fighting human caused global warming. After lust, love, and battle, science invents a rescuing technology.
