Diane Samuels reviews Useful Idiots by Jan Mark:
Useful Idiots is brimming with ideas. The vision of the future is neither dystopian nor utopian. It is engagingly realistic. Some things have improved. Others have not. People still have a quest for knowledge, are greedy, fearful, indulge in political intrigue and get on with their lives as best they can. It is written with a sharp eye to the present as the world of the reader is regarded through the telescope from centuries ahead.
