What a great team Niven and Pournelle are! Here they explore the possible ramifications of the logical extension of something which is becoming common nowadays: closed communities, also known as arcologies.
Todos Santos is such a community, existing in an uneasy relationship with its neighbor, Los Angeles of the future. The social and political aspects of such a situation are examined in great detail.
Definitely worth a read. "Think of it as evolution in action".
