"Together with its accompanying short-story collection, A Second Chance at Eden, Peter F. Hamilton's 'Night's Dawn Trilogy' has been one of the most triumphant works of science fiction to appear in decades." "At the core of this magnificent creation is the Confederation itself: an assembly of human and xenoc colony worlds and asteroid settlements whose cultures and conflicts and turmoils are described over a Timeline of nearly six hundred years." "To mark the completion of this trilogy, Peter F. Hamilton has produced The Confederation Handbook as an essential companion and guide to the diverse elements of the massive universe he has created. Here we have his personal exposition of Adamist culture, Edenist culture, the starships, the status of the Confederation in 2610, a description of sentient xenoc species, as well as a full list of characters and their roles and, of course, details of the Timeline itself."--BOOK JACKET.
