The foundation trilogy : three classics of science fiction by Isaac Asimov
A great trilogy from Isaac Asimov exploring the creation and development of The Foundation(s) -- communities set up by psychohistorian Hari Seldon who used mathematics to predict the fall (and eventual rise) of society. Interesting to see the progression of social/economic/political dynamics predicted in the book as well as a very 50s-era view of the role of women in these societies.
