    Got this book for Christmas and started yesterday, finished this afternoon. REALLY good read.

    Orson Scott Card: Empire.

    (writer of all of the Ender's Game series)

    Basically a story told from the viewpoint of an ex-Special Ops Major and Captain now assigned to the Pentagon on counter terrorism.

    Extreme Right and Left factions have engineered the assasination of the Pres, Vice, and Sec Def and essentially started a Red State/Blue State civil war.

    All told in the very near future and very clearly the current political climate, including the Bush admin.

    A pretty compelling story of the importance of political and societal moderation and the very possible ramifications of our current highly polarized situation.

    As with most of his books lots of interesting historical references as well.
