Historians will draw a line and write ‘This marks the decline and fall of the United States of America’, and they will be right, though some will scarcely realize this fact until much later.

The Foundation Trilogy. Foundation * Foundation and Empire * Second Foundation. Isaac Asimov. New York: Gnome Press, 1951; 1952; 1953. First edition. Original dust jacket.

FOUNDATION begins a new chapter in the story of man’s future. As the Old Empire crumbles into barbarism throughout the million worlds of the galaxy, Hari Seldon and his band of psychologists must create a new entity, the Foundation-dedicated to art, science, and technology-as the beginning of a new empire.
