RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 859439574 LA English T1 Agenda 21 A1 Beck, Glenn., PB Threshold Editions/Mercury Radio Arts PP New York YR 2012 SN 9781476716695 1476716692 AB Just a generation ago, this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of a UN-led program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as "the Republic." There is no president. No Congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom. There are only the Authorities. Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that eighteen-year-old Emmeline has ever known. She dutifully walks her energy board daily and accepts all male pairings assigned to her by the Authorities. Like most citizens, she keeps her head down and her eyes closed. Until the day they come for her mother."--Dust jacket.
