The second of two prequel novels in Isaac Asimov's classic science-fiction masterpiece, the Foundation series

As Hari Seldon struggles to perfect his revolutionary theory of psychohistory and ensure a place for humanity among the stars, the great Galactic Empire totters on the brink of apocalyptic collapse. Caught in the maelstrom are Seldon and all he holds dear, pawns in the struggle for dominance. Whoever can control Seldon will control psychohistory--and with it the future of the Galaxy.

Among those seeking to turn psychohistory into the greatest weapon known to man are a populist political demagogue, the weak-willed Emperor Cleon I, and a ruthless militaristic general. In his last act of service to humankind, Hari Seldon must somehow save his life's work from their grasp as he searches for its true heirs--a search that begins with his own granddaughter and the dream of a new Foundation.

6th Foundation Book

Jul 11, 2016

This was the book that I wanted Prelude to Foundation to be. It follows Hari Seldon's life for the decades after Prelude ends. While we obviously don't get much more insight into the math behind psychohistory, we do get quite a bit more insight into the history and psychology of it as well as how/why he set up the Foundations.

Provided some closure to how Hari completed the setup of the foundation.
