The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
Robert A. Heinlein
It is the year 2076, and the Moon is the dumping ground for the rebellious and the unwanted of the Earth. Faced with little choice, these exiles have banded together in order to live and survive in their harsh and unforgiving environment, creating new social conventions and beliefs. Confronting them is the Luna Authority, the heavy-handed Earth administration, that seeks to extract as much wealth from the "Loonies" as possible, for return to the Earth.

As the situation slowly deteriorates the inhabitants of the Moon come to realise that they have little choice but to revolt against the Earth government, in order to save themselves from economic strangulation and environmental disaster.

A small band of dissidents emerges to lead the revolution. This consists of a one-armed computer jock, a radical young woman, a past-his-prime academic, and a nearly omnipotent computer named Mike. These people ignite the fires of revolution, despite the near certainty of failure and death.
