Mack Reynolds - The Rival Rigelians and Planetary Agent X
Ace Books, 1967
Double Value - Two Complete Science | United Planets #1&3
The team from Earth had the task of raising backward planets to the home world`s high level. The situation on Rigel was this: `The most advanced culture on Rigel`s first planet is to be compared to the Italian cities during Europe`s feudalistic yeas The most advanced of the second planet is comparable to the Aztecs at the time of the Spanish conquest` `These planets are in your control to the extent that no small group has ever dominated millions before. No Caesar ever exerted the power that will be in your collective hands. For half a century, you will be as gods and goddesses!` But the Rigelians were themselves descended from the lost colonists of old Earth and they could learn their lessons as fast as they could be taught. In fact, they could even teach their teachers a thing or two. And therein lay the peril the professors from space never dreamed of.
OBSERVED Rex Morris belonged to the master class which ruled the entire world by brain power or brutality, depending on which was needed. He should have functioned perfectly in the rigid totalitarian society of the future where every thought, word, and action was controlled by the superstate, where everyone was watched night and day by the Great Eye of the internal security forces. It was a strange world, but the rewards were great for those who belonged to the right caste. Morris had all the qualifications - yet he didn`t belong. Nonconformity could mean liquidation - but he was prepared to take the risk!
