The Foundation

For twelve thousand years the Galactic Empire had ruled supreme. Now it is dying a slow death from entropy and corruption. To preserve the accumulated wisdom of the ages and save mankind from oblivion, psychohistorian Hari Seldon gathers the best minds in the Empire and leads them to a bleak planet at the edge of the Galaxy. There they will serve as a beacon of hope for future generations. He calls his sanctuary the Foundation. And we are its inheritors. (From the book cover)
