    The Dispossessed is the story of the inhabited worlds of Tau Ceti and their invention of the instant interstellar communication device known as the Ansible. The Ansible reconfigures relations between two inhabited worlds, rough analogues for the United States and the Soviet Union at the time of the Cold War. The two begin a proxy war triggered by these changes and soon events spiral out of control in a parable for the fragility for Statehood.
