Asimov says of the split of volumes in 4, taking the piss, what, write two introductions for only one advance? He mollifies himself somewhat by the fact he gets a story into one of the books.

This one is literally one star off being as good as 4, coming in at a 3.93 average, under the platinum 4.00 standard.

Still, also an outstanding book, with only one average story, absolutely worth having this group of longer work, again.

Apart from the fabulous title, a pretty interesting book.

A planet of aliens that are similar but different to humans is a target of exploitation.

The forests hold the whole ecology together in a more important way than on Earth. The natives know nothing of violent conflict, but when brutality and violence is used by the invaders to try and get what they want, the locals learn quickly.
