Inhaltsangabe zu „Republic“ von Charles Edward Sheehan-Miles

Eighteen Months on the Amazon Alternate History Bestseller List From an author described as "one of America's criminally neglected authors," Republic is a surprise bestselling dystopian novel (more than two years on the Amazon Alternate History bestseller list) described by readers as "breath-taking," "riveting," and "haunting."  Republic: A Novel of America's Future Ken Murphy is a 45 year-old National Guard Colonel and senior manager at a computer chip manufacturer in quiet Highview, West Virginia. In this future history featuring frightening parallels to our present, the local economy is thrown into a tailspin when the plant is suddenly shut down, even as the nation is thrown into turmoil by a deadly domestic terrorist attack. Murphy, like everyone else in his town, is suddenly thrown out of work, with no way to pay for medical care for his son. The local workers, in an attempt to prove they can operate on their own, move in and occupy the factory. What started as a labor dispute becomes a deadly conflict when the federal government intervenes and three people die in a tragic confrontation. Karen Greenfield, a young captain in Murphy's National Guard battalion, faces a devastating choice: how does she serve the Constitution she swore to protect when the danger comes from the federal government itself? After witnessing the senseless death of a co-worker, she begins to question the foundations of everything she has ever believed. The conflict escalates from Charleston, West Virginia to the halls of Congress. Politicians on both sides refuse to back down or compromise, bringing open armed conflict closer and closer to reality.
