Earth has pretty much run out of that fossil fuel stuff that people were so reliant on, and the technology level on the planet has dropped considerably.

The picking up of an alien signal along the lines of 'hi there, mind if we drop in for a visit sometime?' pretty much gets everyone to pull their fingers out and do something about it.

The world collapsed after the "fission blanket" rid the world of nuclear weapons. Science and scientists were scorned and persecuted as responsible for the collapse.
In this world, a signal from space is received. What can this new world do? Rebuild and get ready for the aliens that are coming to Earth.

The book started out well, but the last third of the book became ponderous. Honestly, just plain boring. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425077632, Mass Market Paperback)

The devastating Food and Fuel Wars have turned once-powerful nations into isolated farming communities. Barter has replaced currency, and scientists-considered responsible for the world's misery-are burned at the stake. Hidden in the Idaho hills, astronomer Allen Chandliss secretly monitors his radio telescope, listening for signs of intelligent life, hoping that aliens will come and improve things on Earth. For seventeen years he has waited patiently. His patience is about to pay off. . . .
