Anarchaos Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Anarchaos

Anarchaos is an exploration of what happens to human society when an entire planet is permitted to exist without laws. The message of the book is that anarchy creates chaos. The main character, a violent felon who has served his time, goes to Anarchaos, a colony planet, to find out who murdered his brother and why. What he finds out is that it is unimportant who murdered his brother, because he concluded that the society (i.e., the culture of anarchy) murdered his brother. Since there are no rules, anyone can do whatever they want. After he realizes that, he decides to pull the plug on the anarchy "experiment." He sets off bombs in the colonial council buildings in all of the 4 major cities on the planet, knowing that this will cause the galactic council to come in and take control of Anarchaos and create the rule of law.
