Rise of the Terran Empire (Technic Civilisation Saga 3), by Poul Anderson, paperback science fiction anthology

“Nicholas van Rijn, the most flamboyant member of the Polesotechnic League of star traders, could see dark times ahead. Fellow league members were using tactics verging on outright piracy, and others were all too eager to sell starships and high-tech weapons to alien barbarians. Even if Van Rijn and his right-hand man David Falkayn could find a way to stop this, the glory days of the League were over.

Hereafter, for its own protection against well-armed alien marauders, the Earth must maintain a strong military fleet. One charismatic man would found an empire that would learn nothing of the lessons history taught of the fates of earlier empires as it began annexing other star systems, whether they wanted to join the Terran Empire or not…

This is the third volume in the first complete edition of Poul Anderson’s Technic Civilisation saga.
